Happy Birthday Mr B!

It was Mr B's birthday yesterday :)
I made the elements on the front of this card from a large manilla tag!
I wanted to use an ATC sized focal spot but could not lay my hands on the card I have somewhere!!! LOL
Still working out the squeezing two houses into one thing! :)

So I cut up the tag into an ATC sized portion along with the tag top left over which I incorporated into a pull out element on the side to tell my sweetie about part of his birthday gift.....we are off on the second part of our honeymoon soon ;)

(yes....the second half! Mr B could not take 2 full weeks off when we married in May so we decided to split it in two :)
We are going to Austria, staying in St. Wolfgang......somewhere neither of us has been before.
The hotel hosts a wine tasting event with the sommelier so I've booked Mr B and myself on it.
Happy Birthday Mr and hugs :)

Images used were one of T!ms butterflies stamped and masked then the man stamped and masked then the clock from The Artistic Stamper stamped and masked then the 1st class mail from Papertrey Ink stamped and masked and finally the T!m background stamped. To add a bit of dimension an additional butterfly was stamped using Distress pens to colour and attached with silicone glue.....although you can't see it I added some wire as feelers too!
Sentiments all Papertrey Ink as is the little bee.....they do have a great selection of sentiments....just a pity the postage can be so expensive!

Thanks for looking.
Happy stamping!

Just realised I can enter this in The Artistic Stamper monthly challenge "Use Autumn Colours".

  3. A brilliant card for your hubby! I'm impressed by your patience with all that masking but what a result!! Drink, Drink, Drink eh! Sounds as though you're in for a good time! We are off to Austria in October - taking trains across the country on our own again! Have a great time! Chrisx
    ps I see you you have downgraded RA! He was in the film we saw last week 'Into the Storm' - he is still v handsome!!

  4. Hi, love the card for Mr B - and what a great idea to split the honeymoon, the next part sounds great fun! Will we see wobbly after wine-tasting photos? I hope so! Have fun. xx

  5. Hi Sioux

    Just popping by to say hi. Happy Birthday to Mr B, his card is gorgeous and the second part of your honeymoon will be too, I know. I hope the weather is kind to you, Austria has not had a good summer this year. Unfortunately we couldn't make it due a new bathroom earlier in the year but I keep an eye on things over there, can't wait to get back. Have a lovely time and don't forget to take lots of photos.
    Hugs Lisax
