Happy Birthday Love of My Life

Today is my hubby's birthday so I made him this card with stars on it to celebrate that he is the star of my life.  I found the original design on Julie Davidson's blog Julie's Stamping Spot.  I just loved that the design worked for something a little bit masculine since making cards for men is the hardest of all.  I used some scrap orange paper for the background and some lovely cream card stock for the base of the card and the elements.  The rest of the paper comes from the Simple Stories Awesome 6x6 paper pad.  I just love the masculine nature of the paper.  For the background, I used Versamark to stamp the stars from the Autumn Leaves set Scribbles Hearts and Stars.  Then I finished it off with the sentiment from Fiskar's Happy Birthday set stamped in Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up.   I just love how the card turned out, but I love my dear hubby more.  Happy birthday!

I'm terrible late every time I make a card for my husband which is strange when I make cards on a daily basis. Maybe I think to hard of coming up with the perfect card for him. Your card is great and using the stars to celebrate his birthday is sooooo sweet!
