Happy Birthday

It's been quite busy at work the past few weeks...making my time go by so quickly.  Today I have a birthday card for one of my husbands friends (and mine too) who he has known since early school days.  My hubby asked I make him a birthday card for his BIG....well, we won't say how old he is...Verlyn, if you're reading this blog...HAPPY, HAPPY, BIRTHDAY!  :-)

All the card stock is from a 6x6 paper pad from This & That "Charming"
The little money is cut from the Creative Critter cartridge at 2"
I used MCT Stitched Oval die and Happy Birthday sentiment, stamped in Memento 'Rich Cocoa'
The monkey's cute wink is from Peachy Keen's Everyday Character Faces.  Using white & black jelly roll pens to color in his eye
The edges were blended with Memento 'Rich Cocoa' to give the newspaper and old ruffed up look and I used my finger nail to [scratch] the edges so they were ruffed up as well

I'm entering this card into the Just Us Girls #144 - Sketch Challenge

I did my very best not to make this card frilly for a guy....but I couldn't stand to not put some glitter on the I added a little Stardust Stickles to the green dots on the card. 

That's it for today....hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!!  Chao for now! --C
