Hubby's Birthday Card

Hi everyone in craft land, this has to be a quick post so my husband doesn't see his Birthday Card. I have used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches shown below.

The circles around the outside made me think of some card I bought about 5 years ago and have never used - can't remember where I bought it sorry. Anyway this is the green circle card which I have layered onto a black base card. The image was a freebie last week from Digital Delights Riley at his laptop - they have a new one this week which you can found here - you have to sign up though.


I have coloured him using watercolour crayons all using different shades of black, green and blue and the laptop was coloured using blue and green metallic crayons - unfortunately the photo doesn't show this. The Blue and green card are from the ROY.G.BIV set at Core'dinations. They have been sanded and crumpled for a distressed look. I have also done faux stitching around the image using my white gel pen.

The other challenges I am entering this card in : -

Paper Cutz - Black, White, Blue and Green,

Quixotic Paperie - their first challenge of Birthdays,

Bee Crafty Distressing and

Crafty Catz - Dotty.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts and my husbands too!!!!!
