Happy Birthday to my Hubby

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday! Do you all have fun exciting plans for Halloween? We have lots of family birthdays in October so we're all gathering together tomorrow to celebrate. I'm looking forward to it, I've been so busy, I haven't seen my dad and sister and her family in a while. Speaking of birthdays, today is my wonderful husband's birthday and I wanted to share the card I made for him. My wonderful husband is truly the love of my life, I'm so blessed to have him. I wanted to make a special card for him (happy birthday honey! :) ).




I wanted to create a little "lovey dovey" scene with various elements from my cricut. I first cut this adorable tree from my Sweethearts cartridge at 4 3/4". I just love this tree and there are so many projects I can use it for. After I put the tree together, I did some doodling with my white gel pen. Next I cut out the couple (me and hubby :) ). This was also cut from the Sweethearts cartridge at 3". This image took a little while to put together because the pieces were pretty small, but I'm happy with the way it turned out. Next I cut out the fence from the paperdolls cartridge. I cut it "fit to length" at 5 1/2 ". I next cut the grass, also from the Paperdolls cartridge, at "fit to length" at 6". Finally, I cut out the two sweet little birds in the tree from my Create a Critter cartridge at 1". After I had all my pieces cut out and put together, I created my card base. All cardstock is from SU. My DP is from DCWV. I first added the fence with pop dots, then adhered the grass to the fence. Next I adhered the tree and then the couple with dimensionals. Finally, I adhered the birds, also with dimensionals. I also added a small pearl to the flower in the girl bird's hair. For a finishing touch, I added roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

I was so excited to give this card to hubby this morning for his birthday. He really loved it and that makes all the work so worth it! :) What do you think? Well, as always, thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful and safe Halloween weekend. Make sure to stop by on Monday, I'll be debuting a new Sweet Pea image and I'll also have some amazing Sweet Pea blog candy. See you then! :)
