Happy Birthday!

Hi there!! Today is my hubby's birthday, so here is the card I made for him! I decided to keep it simple and go with lots of bright colors. I just love the colors in the Fly a Kite collection by My Mind's Eye.

This sketch is an older MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge sketch. I used the It's Your Birthday a la carte stamp by Taylored Expressions, and this is the perfect stamp to have on hand for birthday cards...especially masculine birthday cards! I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers. I used a clear Spica glitter pen over all of the image elements and then went over that with a Clear Glaze Pen to give it some shininess...even though you can't tell it in the photo!

I stitched around all of the edges and finished it off with some twine, a button, and a couple of sparkly brads. It's okay to put sparkle on a masculine card, right? :)
