Happy Birthday to my Darling Husband!!!!

Hey y'all!  My DH had a birthday this past Wednesday and I want to share the card I made for him with you....with his blessing of course!!!  This was his big "75" so I wanted it to be very special and very original!

Here is a photo of the card front.  I found the "golfer gentleman" doing a google seach.....but he was originally a she, so I did some getting rid of the eyelashes!!!  I colored "him" with Copics and then I found a Silhouette file of a golf cart that I colored in the Studio software and added an "88" for Cecil's favorite driver and "FSU" for his favorite football team (our youngest granddaughter graduated from there).  The "golfer gentleman" and the golf cart were both cut with my Cameo as "print and cut" images.  I did cut a separate cutting for his hair and covered it with white flocking and I added "googly eyes"...isn't he cute?  The sentiment is computer generated and I used the "AR BONNIE" font.  I also used some "Clear" Wink of Stella on some areas of the golf cart and added just a few sequins!

And here is a close-up of the card front.

For the inside of the card, which is totally computer generated, I used the "AR BONNIE" font as well as the "CAC Shishoni Brush" font and added some "stitches" and a golf symbol.

I don't normally like making "male" cards but I have to say that this one was actually fun!!!  At any rate, my DH loved it and that is all that counts!!!!  Thanks for stopping by!!!
