Uncle Ted's Birthday Card

Afternoon folks!  Hope you are ready for a fabulous weekend!

I have a quick post to share with you of what I got up to in the craft room this morning.  I am busily making a start on some of the birthday cards that are coming up in the next month.  January and February are big birthday months for us.  This one is for a very special Uncle Ted aka Ben's mums new partner or if you're asking Little Miss Emilie (her very elder boyfriend, as she has him wrapped round her little finger) lol

The gorgeous image is from The Stamping Boutique and I have colored it today with my watercolor pencils and written Ted's name on the tag to personalize it.  All the embellishments on this on are handmade / cut and punched and I love the wire twirly's I added to the stars as they really feel and look like shooting stars.  I always seem to struggle with cards for guys but this one fell together easily.  And yes, it had bling on it even though it is for a guy, but I think it goes well.

I hope you like what you see and thanks for dropping in on me.
Have a great weekend!
