Most Definitely Not a Christmas Card!

Yesterday was my dearly beloved's Birthday so I made him this little card!


So nice to get away from the conveyor belt Christmas cards!!! We certainly have been a production line this year!!!

I loved this image the minute I saw it! He's Strongo The Manificent and is from Just Inklined. You can Purchase him here!

 I simply printed him off & coloured him with my Promarkers.I tried several different colourways but decided to go with this one! I then cut him out with my nesties on the big shot.
The card base is printed with Spring time backing papers available from Scrapbookingmad. I have used them to do the matting & layering too!

The Unique tickets are from Sentiments 4 you & I coloured the outside edges again with promarkers & attached with foam pads for dimension. My other half is most certainly unique!

The Greeting is computer generated, I'm sorry I can't remember the name of  the font but will update if I do! It's not on the laptop so would need to power up the desktop!
The ribbon was recycled from one of my pressies!
