Happy Big 5-0, Brad!

Today is my husband's 50th birthday.  He was born in 1962, but rather than go with the "over the hill"/ graveyard theme, I decided on a 50's theme.  The Mad Men-esque man is cut at 4" from the Surburbia cartridge, as is "daddy-o" (1").



For the inside I used the Nifty Fifties cartridge and welded the letters and letter shadows for "fifty is".  "Nifty" is a phrase on the cartridge.


Colors are Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss, and Baja Breeze.  Patterned paper is old.

I bought a turquoise gift bag and cut a large "nifty" out and glued it on.  He is getting a porkpie hat (a la Breaking Bad) and a Heisenberg T-shirt (also BB).  Can you tell we are fans?   Brad is bald and has a goatee like Walt on BB, so I will post pix of him in his hat.

Thanks for stopping by!
