Hubby's BD Card

Yesterday was hubby's birthday & when I looked for his card the day before I couldn't find it. Oh well, good excuse to make a card, as if I need one--haha!  I planned to use one of my branch stamps, but then I came across this Savvy Stamps Birch Tree I bought long ago. Decided to see how it would look embossed with my newest powder--Stampendous! Sparkle & Puff. Gave me just the look I wanted--a snowy forest. The black frame is done with Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangle dies & the sentiment is an old one by Penny Black--love the font. Finished off with white paint splatters & I'm happy to say hubby really likes it. I'm entering these challenges: City Crafter Challenge Blog, Lori's Christmas/Winter Challenge #2, Penny Black & More and The Playground.
Counting down--6 shifts to retirement!  Thanks so much for stopping by during this busy season.
