Happy Birthday Dad!

I'd love to say I managed to do 2 cards in one night, as well as spend 2 hours at the gym but it would be plain lie!

It's my dad's birthday in a couple of weeks so I've made him this card in preparation.

Hopefully he'll like!

After making it I realised it would even fit a couple of challenges (we all know I love challenges!)

Whimsy Stamps - Theme is Birthday
Daring Cardmaker - Use Blue and Green
Nutshells - Make a male card using blue and green





Here's how I made it:
Papers - Papermania Secret Garden.
Stamp - Lili of the Valley - "Moggi - Guess What?" and letters are Hero Arts Clear Design Pattern Alphabet
Moggi is coloured with H2Os
Letters are stamped with Teal and Turqoise Pigment inks from Colorbox Cat's Eye and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. They are stuck onto the card with 3d foam pads to give some dimension.
Card stock is from stash
Ribbon is from Dovecraft Muted Ribbons set
Gems are from John Lewis

Hope you like it!
