Birthday Card for DH

I just love this image by The Greeting Farm - Oliver&Amelia - my favourite thing.  I had him coloured before I started work on the card and decided to change his hair colour from blond to brown!!! hmmmmmm not sure if I'm happy but it will have to do!!  Would like to spend more time fine tuning the colouring but... time is a racing!
I saw this card by the wonderfully talented Kelly Booth and I knew I had to buy this set!.  I only recently got to ink it up and loved the way another amazing gal - Lucy made this card for her Dad recently.  So I "mish mashed" the two ideas in my head and got the card above!  Added machine stitching in brown on pp from Joy Ride by Cosmo Cricket which I had run through the printer to add the sentiment.  Added it to Bazzill dotted swiss cardstock as the base.

Lots of glossy accents on the fish bowl and hey presto a card for my DS's to give to my DH on his Birthday today!.  Happy Birthday hun. 

Hope everyone has a great day and wonderful weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
