Happy Birthday, Ken

Well, with all this card making, you'd think that I'd have countless greeting cards to use, but here it is, my hubby's birthday, and I didn't have a card to give him!  Well, I had cards, but I like to make family cards especially for family members, not use just generic designs.  But, as he was out most of the day, I had my chance to get craftin'!

Ken is an adventurer at heart, but he doesn't often get the chance to exercise his adventurous nature, because he is so responsible and family-loving.  Here is the card I crafted for him:

The card base is Early Espresso cardstock and the back panel is from the Nautical Expedition DSP (discontinued).  The Eiffel Tower is from the Artistic Etchings stamp set and the sentiments are from Daring Adventure and Plane and Simple stamp sets.  The Eiffel Tower was stamped on Basic Grey cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  The sentiments are stamped on Crumbcake cardstock with StazOn Jet Black, and also on a Mini Vintage tag, tied on with linen thread.  A splash of Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon gives the card a little pop.  Hope he likes it. 

This card also meets the requirements for the SplitCoast Stampers Saturday Inspiration Challenge #239  using this bottle opener as inspiration.  The whole Graham and Green website was open to use.

I had better go get ready, as we're going to go for dinner at Kelly O's to celebrate, then we're planning to see the movie, "Hunger Games".  I'm excited to see it, having just read all three books of the trilogy!  Have a great weekend!
