Sending Birthday Wishes

It was my husband's birthday last month.  I had made his card weeks before using the CraftsUPrint digital kit by Gillian Hutchinson called "Life's Pitch".

Unfortunately when we were away prior to his birthday we made the agonising decision that we needed to sell our caravan.  Although I knew it was for the best it has really affected me. 

I then had to mention to my husband about his birthday card ie about the topic, as I knew health-wise I did not have time to make another card when we got home, but he was OK about it.

For my card I have used the topper, decoupage and insert from the kit and printed onto linen card for a special effect.

The backing papers I used are from Summertime Designs (sadly no longer available).  On one of the papers I used a wood effect stamp around the edge.

I have finished the card off with some ribbon, sentiments from the kit and some card candi.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
