Happy b'day to you

Hello and a warm welcome to you all on this lovely Sunny Sunday afternoon
Well a quickie for me as l'm Hosting a BBQ and l need to get on with it
Thank you for popping by l'd like to share with you my card and enter into the 
Following Challenges 
And here is the card l made for my friends B'day which is tomorrow 
l only hope l can hand deliver it because her home is Ireland but for the pass
10yrs or so she has been coming over here for the summer and goes back home 
Just before Christmas and if her plans have changed than l'll be sending it with a
Belated message but l don't think that will happen one thing for sure 
Though she will laugh at the Colour of the hair which is grey even though my friend has Brown hair lol just though the more mature lady can look as good having a cocktail
