Hubby's Birthday Card

Here I am again with my third and final post today. Please scroll down for all cards, storage and a winner.

This is the card I made for Hubby's Birthday yesterday. He often gets cute teddies but as he really likes this style of card I thought I would do something very different this year. It's an 8 x 8 card which gave me plenty of scope for embellishing. The background paper is some of my fave Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage. I've gone for a distressed look with DIs and sanded Core'dinations. I've used various Tim Holtz stamps from the journey set, TH on the edge die and sprocket gears, some magic mesh and Marianne scroll die and Sizzix scroll corner die. The grungy postcard is a Lili of the Valley stamp with Happy Birthday handwritten.

Here's a close up of the tag, which uses 3 of the stamps. Wise words.

I would like to enter this into the text me challenge at Stamptacular and Birthday card with a sentiment at Birthday Sundaes.
