Happy Birthday Husband

Today is my husband's birthday.  When he is not working he likes to read, do gardening and do DIY so when I saw this CraftsUPrint image by Gordon Fraser called "DIY Carpenter/Joiner Dude A4" I thought it was perfect for him.  I was using an 8x8 card so I reduced the image down and printed the image off twice so I could do some decoupage.

For Christmas last year a friend bought me some DIY dies so I had to use them.  It took a while cutting them out so I could paper piece some of the items but I think it was well worth it as they help to make the card.

The backing papers are different wood effects that I have used and they are from The Works.

I have finished the card off quite simply with some thread and a stamped sentiment.

Tomorrow I will be sharing the card that I have made for my youngest son for his dad's birthday.

What a great card, I can think of so many people I could send this too. The addition of the dies was well worth the effort, they complete the card really well. I'll bet your hubby was chuffed to bits with his card.

Thank you for joining in with my challenge.
