Happy Birthday Rick

Today is my boyfriend Rick's birthday and this is the card I made for him. He's been helping me around the house with all the repair and remodel projects since the pipe broke under my kitchen/stamp room floor so I thought this "Fella" would be perfect for him.

I'm happy to say he really liked his card and laughed that I'd even gotten his hair right. Don't you just love those Copic markers?! I used Creamy Carmel for my card base, Nutbrown and Ocean Blue, the stamp is a Bella from the Fellas collection, the stamp I used on the blue paper is from The Rubber Riot, SU Circle Of Friendship for the Birthday Wishes, SU extra large eyelets and Copic markers to color the image, 1 1/8" & 1 1/4" circle punches and the ticket corner punch. The layout is from a Pretty Pajama Party sketch (7-01-08) I saw while blog browsing.

What a fun card to make! I've been adding to my collection of clear and unmounted stamps the last few weeks - you know, getting in the mode! Now, I just need the time to play.

I'd also like to thank everyone for their comments, it feels wonderful to be back and your comments are always so kind. Thanks again!

I'm leaving a second comment...actually more of a question. Where did you get the metal embellishments you used? (I don't think those are eyelets...look more like washers?)

I need to make a masculine card or two and would love to use those if I could find them.
