40th Birthday Shutter Card

I (Maria) was asked to make a Tri-Shutter 40th birthday card by my friend Gisela for her friend Jon. She told me he loves golf and camping - so I worked along those lines for the card. I used the full card front template with Rob & Bob "Remember When" paper. More details below:
For the front of the card, I used Stampendous cupcake stamp. I embossed the candle and then used glossy accents. The sentiment is from Inkdadinkadoo and the "40th" from Martha Stewart. I also added brads on the corners.

For the inside of the card - I used Sizzix Roundabout for his name and added a button in the middle of the "O". There is a mix of Studio G, Amuse and Memory Box stamps and sentiments. All colored with Prisma pencils. I paper pieced the penquin's golf outfit to match the card too. The cake and the beer bottles are also finished with glossy accents.

I hope both Gisela and Jon like the card. What do you think??
