60th Birthday card for Kim

Hi everyone, I woke up Friday morning in a bit of pain and by the end of the day it was full blown. I must have pulled a muscle in my back/shoulder and it has not been much fun at all for the last couple of days. Just getting into bed was not good and trying to find a spot to be comfortable was just not happening. I didn't go to craft on Saturday but we had our friend Kim's 60th birthday party last night. It was an outdoor affair and it got pretty cold!!! Our youngest daughter gave my back and arm a massage a couple of times and said it was quite inflamed. That must have helped quite a bit. I left hubby at the party and Rachel and her boyfriend dropped me home, I took a couple of painkillers and headed off to bed.  I am much better this morning but am still being pretty careful. The drive in to church was a bit painful when hubby braked and also when he took off too. Hopefully it should be better by tomorrow as I have the two grandchildren again
I made Kim a card which I was going to share yesterday but didn't feel up to sitting in front of the computer to post and scan the card.
Here it is.........

SU Early Espresso cardstock for the basecard
SU Crumb cake cardstock
Sentiment, border and image are from Close to My Heart (an e-bay purchase)
60th was diecut with a Sizzix alphabet die
The happy sentiment was part of a stamp from SU Teeny, Tiny Sentiments
SU Crumbcake inkpad
SU Early Espresso inkpad.

I forgot to scan the inside, but kept it plain with just a layer of sponged crumbcake cardstock

I am entering this into the following challenges:
