On a roll!

As I get better at making cards, I seem to get better organized. Of course this is a good thing! Decided that if I'm going to make a card, I might as well make 2 or 3 since I already have the paper and embellishments. I'm not sure what I am going to do with all these cards when they are done. I made this one for a friends husband since we discuss his up coming birthday. It's another milestone. I celebrated another milestone with them 20 years ago. My how time flies! Since he is 4 years older than I am, I told him then he could "lead the way" for the rest of us and he is doing a fine job.
This is the first time I've used piercing. The plastic canvas works great as a template. What fun and so easy. I decided it would help tie everything together. I really like the craft cardstock for the card. The PP are scraps from a scrapbook layout so I don't have a clue whose responsible for the patterns/colors. Once again I used the SU Alphabet Soup stamp. The ink is Brilliance Coffee Bean. Messy!! I now own a t-shirt to wear for stamping only. The brads are copper which is a little difficult to see in the scan.

I think it's a perfect card for a male birthday. Now I need to ask all my BFF's for their husbands birthdays.
