60th Birthday Celebration

Next month is not only my birthday, but my boss' birthday as well.  Every month at work we have a birthday potluck to celebrate the birthdays for the month for those of us who work IN the office (not from home).  We collect money, I make everyone (in the office) a special card that fits them.  The 50 transcriptionists that work from home always get a birthday card I've made as well, just not one I've made specifically for them.  So, of all of the birthday cards I make every year only 62 of them are given to my co-workers.  Do you make at least 62 birthday cards a year?  LOL  This month is my Boss' 60th birthday.  One of my co-workers who busts her buns to make every potluck fantastic wanted to do red and black.  So, here is what I made for her.  Not using anyone's stamps...just paper and my own sentiment.  I added rose buds, twine, ribbon, lace and gems.  I used an embossing folder on the top half (the red cardstock).

Thanks for looking!  Leave me a comment and let me know how many birthday cards you make each year...I'm curious just how crazy I am making so many...
