birthday card

this weekend will be my husband's birthday. when we were dating i would go all out & do something every day for the week leading up to his birthday.  now that we have been married for a while & have 2 little ones, he's lucky if he gets a weekend celebration. poor guy. but i do my best in making  him a great cake, delicious meals, and cool house decorations. we don't do presents these days. but we have our oldest daughter (& when our youngest is old enough she'll help too) pick out something little to give. 

so here is the card that i made for him

i used some mme paper & some paper that i made myself & created the background. then i took a memory box stamp & inked it up with some brown ink. i then ran it through my printer to make the sentiment. next i used an owl stamp from hero arts & colored it with my copics & spica pens. then i used glossy accents on top of the owl. after it dried, i used distress ink. next i punched out the film strip using the tim holtz die. i added paper that i had my 2 year old paint with water colors & i stamped it with some mini hero arts stamps...i tried to get her to stamp the paper but she couldn't quite do it yet.  she was having more fun messing with the ink. lol  to color in these stamps i used my gel pens.  finally i used some curly ribbon from hallmark as embellishment. 

hope he likes it. i am now off to make the decorations for the house. thanks for stopping by.
