A Masculine Birthday

As soon as Nick saw this card he said "I wish you would have made this card BEFORE my birthday!" Haha! I can't remember if I told you this or not but my husband has a slight obsession with moose! He is so cute. If he sees anything with a moose on it he will say to me "Don't you think this would look good in our house?" Ok...enough of my rambling.

For this card I used Mr. Riley the Moose from Hanna Stamps. I just love this image. In fact, I think he may be my favorite! I colored him in with my Prismacolor Pencils and Crayola Crayons using my blending stump and OMS. After I was finished coloring him I then stamped Happy Birthday underneath him. The sentiment is from my Stampendous Totally Tabs stamp set that I got from Taylor almost a year ago! :D The paper that I used on this card is from the BasicGrey Archaic paper pack. I sponged the edges down with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain and Antique Linen distress ink. I then added brads to the sides of the card and wrapped around some felt ribbon that I picked up at Archivers!

Well I hope you are enjoying your Wednesday evening! Only one more day of school is left this week and I am SO happy about that! :) It will be wonderful having the weekend free!
