Happy Birthday to HUBBY!

Hello fellow crafters!!! Hope you are gearing up for a creative weekend.....unfortunately tomorrow I will be dividing my craft time to spend the evening with hubby to celebrate his birthday. I made this card for him today and I was not quite sure what I wanted to create, I knew it needed to be something different from what I had made in the past, so I selected my background pattern first, which was from "My Minds Eye", then I decided to work with creams and then I reached for my "A Childs Year" cart and found the tag shape to stamp the sentiment on ..tag was cut at 1 3/4"(cream tag) the chocolate background tag was cut @ 2", I placed a chocolate brad in the center, I used Tim Holtz distress ink-tea dye around the edges...added some chocolate gel ink to doodle around the curves. the sentiment says "the more Candles, the bigger the Wish!" from stampin-up, I then thought about placing this on top of something that would really make it pop, so I pulled out my embossing folder that says HAPPY BIRTHDAY....I added some chocolate gros-grain ribbon, a bow, and MS butterfly punch brought it all together..awhhhh! So glad  I came up with something different, and classy for my man (lol).....I also used my chomper to do a little something extra on the pattern background edges....I hope you find this card inspiring....and don't be afraid to add butterflies to your man's card.
