This card I made for my husband, who like most men I've asked, likes simple flat cards with minimal embellishments. I understand that ribbon is a no-no. And don't even start him on buttons!
The background is from BB: Retro. It's my favourite from that set; it's got that ledger-y look.
I embossed the greeting with clear powder.
I hand cut the circles and added some shading with copics. The clouds were made by twisting a small sponge dauber in circular motions.
He said he liked it. :)
