Cuddly Birthday Wishes

Yesterday was my husband’s birthday. Of course, Thursday night I was scrambling to make a card. It seems I can never get ahead on my projects.

Anyway, I am quite happy with how this came out. Melanie’s stamp sets at Gina K are so adorable. For this card, I used the lions from Cuddles & Hugs.

I have recently discovered that I really like my Koh-i-Noor pencils. The first time I used them, I couldn’t believe how heavy the actual pencil is. The colors are really nice and a bit darker than my Prismas, I think. I colored the lions with the Koh-i-Noor pencils, used Gamsol and then outlined them with Copics for the light brown and an outline of the pencil for the dark brown.

The designer paper is from DCWV The Sweet Matstack with Glitter. The ribbon is from Michaels. It is a sueded ribbon, so I think it is a touch more masculine.

Thanks for stopping by!
