It's A Vegas Birthday, Baby!

Hello everyone!

I'm back, today, with a special birthday card to show you.  And, I must admit, this is one of my most favorite cards, of any that I've made so far.  This card is for my friend who's celebrating his birthday soon and he's going to Vegas to celebrate - On the exact day of his birthday!  I always make him a card for his birthday, so this year I knew a Vegas themed birthday card would be perfect.

Doesn't this card just scream masculine?!

The papers are from my stash - I've had them for awhile, and at the time I bought them, I had no clue what I was going to do with them! LOL! The images are from the Vegas Nights set, from Daisy's Doodles. For my card layout, I used the fabulous sketch at Sketch And Stash.  I did fussy cutting around the images.  The scalloped circle and birthday sentiment were punched with punches.  The birthday sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
