Yes, I Made Him A Card Of His Own! :o)

Hello, and happy Tuesday to you all!
Today is my sweet husband's birthday! You know that I just had to make him an actual birthday card of his own and I'm sharing it with you today. I couldn't believe it when I found a Bugaboo digi image in my files that looked EXACTLY like me! ;o) So I colored that up for the front  of the card. My intent was to have the "Happy Birthday" look like graffiti but my letter stamps were too big. This was the only sentiment I had that fit. Since the bricks were embossed the image didn't stamp solid, so it kind of worked the way I wanted! lol
Here's the front of the card:


And here's the inside:
C

Isn't that cute? It's a pop-up! I should have taken a side angle photo too. I will the next time I use it. I had to take this photo before I wrote in it or I'd be adding a lot more color to the face of my image! haha The rest of the writing was really funny and so cute! I had made the card for him yesterday. So last night I asked him what I should bake him for his birthday. His answer was..."Ice cream!" lol Have a happy day, my friends! :o)

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections Cardstock;

Nancy, I am shocked that you are so much like me! I love this card and may have to case it for my husband's birthday in September, but I would have to use something different on the inside! Ice cream is not his thing, but I do know what is! :D Blessings dear sister.
