Hubby's birthday

This is the card I came up with for my husbands 38th birthday.  Yes, I just said how old my husband is.  I have decided that birhdays are just a number and should be celebrated.  After all, it means that you are still alive.  Who doesn't want to be alive?
So I started out with a kraft base, because I LOVE kraft paper.  And it is so neutral.  The blue is the new PTI color Blueberry sky.  Love it, it is just such a soft and lovely color.  I stamped the middle with polka dot basics (PTI) in versamark and then broke it up with Fine linen ribbon.
the main image is based with kraft paper and then I used cream cardstock to stampe the image (Through the trees, PTI) in tea dye distress ink.  The sentiment is from Through the trees also and stamped in black.  I just inked up the edges with tea dye and cream ink.  I am so pleased with it and my hubby loved it as well, that is all the matter after all.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

This turned out great! Took you long enough to get over the age thing! LOL
I am just going to forget mine with Garrett's being the day after and 3other grandkids that month to boot! But I know your dad and all of you won't let me. :)
