Happy 40th to DH!

Today is my husband's 40th birthday! Happy birthday, babe! I love ya!!



Here's the card I made for him using my Stampscapes stamps (such calming stamps, aren't they?) and my favorite DP, Parisian Breeze. The white matted panel is up on Dimensionals and then the embossed main image is up on a second layer. The layout is Amy Rysavy's AMYRS60 sketch..I just moved the ribbon up above the main panel. I made the sentiment on the computer (Lucida Calligraphy font).

Here's what the inside looks like. It's the same layout, just without the Chocolate matting behind each panel.
