Hubby's Birthday Card

I've had in the back of my mind that I needed to get hubby's birthday card done & finally did in the nick of time!
Fortunately, I took time to watch Betsy's PTI MIM video a few days ago--just the inspiration I needed. Hubby enjoyed downhill skiing when we met & I knew he'd like a card with snowflakes. Don't know why I hadn't opened What the Doodle Snowflake--just love the images.  I used Blueberry Sky cardstock & Copic marker B23 to outline only the largest snowflakes.  Then Enchanted Evening was sponged darkest at the top & lighter to none at the bottom. I added Nuvo clear drops to the snowflake centers--works even for a guy's card, I think. The sentiment is from Twig Wreath & Wonderful Words Hello--just the block font I wanted.  I'm also entering my card at SSS Wednesday & The Male Room.  I've made a lot of progress, but still working on mailing Christmas cards.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll catch up with you as soon as I can.
PS--Hubby loves it--"you should enter this one in a contest."

  3. Fantastic card Greta. Hubby is right...but you're ahead of him on the entering part. Hope you are staying warm and dry, and that your cards get on their way. Hubs hasn't touched his yet. Unless I have forgotten someone mine are done.
