Another day at an end and today was my wonderful hubby's birthday :)

We had a lovely lunch out (he took the day off work) and other than that its been a pretty chilled out day.

I wanted to share his birthday card from the girls (made by me of course...hehe)

Well the title of my post refers to the image I used rather than my husband actually being harassed lol!

This image is from the S.W.A.L.K collection and as soon as I saw it, I knew it was perfect for the card from the girls, as this is just what he is like when I'm not here for any reason. Apart from I think he normally leaves a little more mess than that....hahaha...

I used this sketch from Sunday sketch and stamp to help me put together my card.

I just loved the words, they really made me chuckle for some reason! And something my eldest would say if she was after something!! lol

The image was coloured using promarkers.

The cute little hearts as well as the corner piece were cut out of a contrasting colour, just to help the greens pop more. They were cut out of a corrugated card, this added a nice bit of texture to the card.

And after it was all put together this was the finished card :)

Materials Used:

Red corrugated card from stash
S.W.A.L.K Image
Green twine from stash
Green card - The front was patterened & the back of the same card was plain - From Blank Canvas paper pad
