60th Birthday Card(s)

I was asked to make a 60th birthday card and wanted to use the Paper Smooches digits and stripes for the current PS Sparks challenge. I ended up with two cards as I wasn't happy with the first one. Both cards are based on separate sketch challenges. I finally got hold of some heavy weight vellum and couldn't resist trying out the Simon Says Stamp banner die. Let me know which one you like….
