Birthday Wishes


This card I made for my husband Dave's birthday next week.  I had to try so hard to step away from the ribbons, glitter and gems, as the base card is 8 x 8 inch square and there was just so much space to play with!  It looks really really big, but he is very special, and I wanted it to stand out.

xXx love you babe xXx

I followed the sketch on Just Cute Bears, and the photo theme on Simon Says Stamp.  I used K&Co Addison papers (.....on a roll with them! lol) and a MS punch, dies and card candy.  I also hand stitched the stamp panel.

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

Just Cute Bears - Sketch
Creative Inspirations - something very old from stash - I used K&Co sentiments which I have had years!
Simon Says Stamp - colour theme
One Stop Craft - monochrome

Thanks for looking, have a great week, and good luck everyone in these challenges.

This is so so beautiful, love the way you've doubled up the hearts in a constrasting colour very effective and your colouring is fantastic especially the shading on the ribbon of the pressie, I'm sure your hubby will simply adore it. Take care Ann-Marie xxx

Love the punched centre & your embellishing of it with the brads & small flowers. The shine on that ribbon that you achieved with your colouring is amazing. Love the off-set hearts too. Just altogether rather special as you say. Hope he has a lovely day.
