My Sunshine….

I love my husband. He is my best friend and he brightens each and every one of my days.  He also just celebrated a birthday… which meant I needed to make him a card. 

I always struggle with masculine cards so I went with something super simple but to the point.  I gathered up some miscellaneous buttons and pulled out some my scrap paper bin and searched through the patterned paper for something fun and a little funky. I kinda had an idea rolling around in my brain and just needed to get it out of my head. 

And I like how it turned out. :)

I knew did not want to stamp on this card so I pulled out some fun little alpha stickers and trimmed them up to fit the sentiment “mat”.

When I had it mostly assembled (dry fit) I decided it needed a little something else so I threaded Bernie and did some machine stitching for a little texture.   I tore some strips of scrap paper and “stitch bunched” a ribbon onto the strip as well.

I think he liked it, too!
