Happy Birthday Kyle!

I made this card for my husband for his birthday. We celebrated his birthday yesterday with a nice backyard BBQ with some of our friends. For his birthday I gave my husband a gift certificate to get his tattoos done. After Rhylan was born my husband new he was ready to get the girls names done. He plans to get one on each forearm. He was very excited about his gift!

To make the card I started with some crumb cake cardstock for the base of the card. I then used some of my Stella Rose paper for the two pattern papers in the background. I matted one of the pattern papers with some Very Vanilla and Baja Breeze. I stitched around the outside with my sewing machine and some dark brown thread. I then stamped out Beerafella with some memento ink on some Very Vanilla cardstock. I then cut it out using my oval nestabilities. I used a technique my friend Shanna taught me to make sure I didn't cut off the beer case with the nestability. I added a scalloped oval cut from some crumb cake cardstock using the scalloped oval nestabilities. I coloured Beerafella with my copic markers and distressed the edges with some crumb cake ink. I added some of my new Early Espresso Scalloped ribbon from Stampin' Up to the left side and placed my image over top. The sentiment is from a 2011 Stampin' Up Sell-a-bration set called"Happy for You". I stamped it with Early Espresso Ink and distressed the edges again with Crumb Cake ink. I added a Baja Breeze corduroy button with some Whisper white and Early Espresso bake's twine. 

On the inside of the card I used some scraps from my Stella Rose paper to finish off the card. I used the "Occasional Quotes" and "Bring on the Cake" stamp sets for my sentiment.
