Happy Birthday

Well, yesterday I showed you the card I sent to work in my husband's backpack.  It was officially from our pups.  Tonight's card is from me.

My husband has always been enamored with planes.  I have cross-stitched airplanes for him.  I have bought books and prints.  I have gone to the hangar with him as he shared all the details of the inner workings of an airliner.  So when I found this stamp at Serendipity, I knew I had to have it.  He actually told me what kind of plane it is!!!

I colored the image with Copics.  I used Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles using silver Wausau specialty paper and white cardstock.  The sketch comes from Fetch-a-sketch challenge #48.  The sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michaels, stamped with Versafine Black Onyx then punched out and matted on silver cs.  I think it is a pretty manly card, don't you think?  Anyway, it was a hit with my birthday guy.

I am also entering the following challenges:

CAS-ual Fridays - birthday
Paper Pretties - happy birthday
Rhedd & Rosie's - monochrome
Totally Paper Crafts - monochromatic

Thanks for stopping by!  Not sure if you'll hear more from me or whether Margaret may post this weekend.  So pop back by and check it out!
