My Hubby is 40!

 My hubby is 40 this weekend! He is blessed with his family, health and stunning good looks :) This is a very stampy, scrappy card that I created for him.

No Ribbons
No Flowers
Oh my!!!!

I used a few sets from My Favorite Things. The background harlequin stamp is from the Caged Bird set. I used the set "Own your story" as well as a few of the sentiments from the "Just my type" set.
Fun little details were created as well (since I couldn't use ribbon or flowers). The Notebook Edge die for the side of my card. I used one of my Tim Holtz stick pins to hold my stamped sentiment. The "40" is from my stash of blackboard by Cosmo Cricket. The kraft ticket is from my Maya road stash and then the black glitz arrow to draw attention to the 40. The little story of my life sticker from Cosmo Cricket's tiny type collection.

I used a few adirondack pigment inks....Black,Juniper, Peach Belinni and Sunset Orange.
Here is the inside of the card....Ahhhhh 40.....time to "BE BRAVE"!
