The Name is Bond...James Bond

Last month I went to a friends 30th Birthday Party which was all James Bond themed....and when I say themed I mean the whole nine yards...Aston Martin parked outside the hotel...Casino...Cocktail glass centre pieces, Golden Guns...and even pics of all the Bonds around the room.

So anyway I needed to come up with a card for him...
A very simple card based on a Tux...I just added a few touches....Lipstick Stamp, Bow Tie done with a die from Lil' Inker Designs, and finished with a 30 using AC Thickers and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

As I said very simple but here are a couple of pics I took on the night...
It was a fab night and I managed to drink, walk and dance the whole night in extremely high heels...approx 4" heels.
