Belated Birthday

I was going through my Drafts Folder (which has still got loads of projects in, sigh) and found this "belated birthday" card I made for my hubby's brother-in-law a couple of years ago; the thing is when I found it I realized I've missed his birthday again this year (it was last week so I'll just have to get one made and sent... late - again, lol)
The image is from Mo Manning... called, appropriately enough "I Forgot".   I coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils - don't I always, lol, and cut it out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Scalloped Square die
I used paper from Kaisercraft's Class Act pad.  I embossed some heavy black paper to match the card base with a Cuttlebug Forest Branches embossing folder for texture then cut it with one of the (Lawn Fawn I think) Stitched Border dies that I use all the time to put the panel across the top
I added some chevron ribbon from my stash - goes well with the chevron DP - and the "OOPS" which are acrylic letters I've had for a while.  I made the "I Forgot" sentiment on the computer.  The rest of the sentiment is on the inside, and Brad's name in the acrylic letters too
The inside of the card has some of the DP and ribbon from the front; it is a gift card holder as well as a card so I made a pocket on the inside front to hold the "scratch and match" tickets we get for Brad every birthday (family joke), I used embossed yellow card on the inside to brighten it up a bit.
That's about it for this card, very simple really... it's that cute image that makes it work I reckon :-)  I would like to enter my card in the following challenges: 
Aud Sentiments Has this Bingo Board, I've used either Die Cut / Embossing / Pattern Paper or Ribbon / Digi / Die Cut
The following are "Anything Goes" challenges

Hope I'll be back a bit sooner next time, though it is the twins' birthday next week (they're 5 already, can you believe it?!) and I haven't made their cards yet - I'm not making their cakes this year as they are helping Mummy :-)) but I still have to get their cards done and the rest of their present sorted.  Either way, until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
