Happy Birthday!!!

I want to wish a fabulous HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my darling Husband.  Without getting into our life story...he is...unbelievable.  We've been with each more than half of our lives and what I love most is that all of our journeys end up back in the same place...together.  Happy Birthday My Love...

With that - here is the card that I've made for him.

For those of us who know us will understand that CLEARLY I had to use one of the gorgeous Kenny K images for the main image for his card.  I chose X-mas Hottie as my main image.  I colored her with my Copics and Prismacolor markers.
I trimmed her out and added sparkly glitter glue to her fluffy trim.  I then set her aside to dry.  I colored her wings and trimmed them out.  As you can see they are from the accessory pack.  Once my image was dry I then adhered them together with 3-D foam adhesive. 
I layered lots of delicious holiday papers and stitched each one.  I added some fab green and white polka dot ribbon, a foam sticker that I transformed with white glue and SU! red glitter, and an awesome chipboard embelli that I added a silver pipe cleaner to as a little extra bling.
I printed my sentiment out in MS Word, trimmed it out and backed it with SU! Garden Green (i think that's the name).

I can't wait to celebrate with great friends and family tonight for my darling's special day!!

Happy Birthday Honey!!

I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired!

Holiday Hugs-
