Adventure birthday card

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  I hope it was great and you were able to squeeze in some crafty time.  :)

Today I am sharing a card I made for my husband.  It was a "milestone" birthday and I wanted it to be different.  Milestone birthdays means entry into a new decade and some people take these birthdays not so well.  My husband, on the other hand, has approached it differently and is achieving a goal that he has had for a while...and I am so proud of him for it!  It seemed appropriate to make an enthusiastically aspiring card.  The background stamp by JustRite- Let the Adventure Begin- was perfect for him!

It was stamped using Memento's Rich Cocoa.  Tim Holtz Distress Stains were mixed with water and painted onto the image.  The watch had glossy accents applied for a 3D effect.  The key was colored and the new Stickles color Rose Gold was applied.  
It was an enjoyable card to make as I hardly every do any "painting" or coloring.  My hubby enjoyed the card, too!

Thanks for stopping by and have a good Monday!
