A special birthday card

Okay... you know those days where you have most of the pieces of a puzzle together, and you spend time looking for the missing pieces? Yup this card and me had one of those... I showed it to the hubby... he said it was off...  Bells and Whistles are going off in my head... I need a third opinion (the first was mine) so I went to the one person I knew could tell me if what the hubby thought was correct.. I mean the hubby being right... about my card??? Crazy right.... not so much!  So I instant message my friend Justin on fb and show him the card... he says about the same thing... Now I know there's a problem... Then I find Tammy online... and she said the same thing, okay... thank goodness for adhesives removers :)
Thanks for helping me out Justin and Tammy!!!

Well after reworking a bit of the card... you see the final product... some card have a happy ending, even from the beginning while others... well.. don't! 

I tried a new stamp today... hot off the UPS truck... I started with Art Impressions unmounted stamp Fire Out set... you'll see the sentiment in the lower right hand corner and started grabbing for my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, and got to work.  My paper pad is from Studio Calico, from the wanderlust collection.. which maybe old but its new to me... and I just love it!  I also used Stampin' Up! Endless Birthday Wishes, in Memento Black ink... okay so pretty much all the black ink is Memento.. my cardstock is Simon 120lb thick cardstock and my sequins are from Doodlebug!!! Oh yeah, I also used stitched rectangles for the paper pad layer, and some Wink of Stella on the glasses, shoes and hair! !

This card is going to someone very special very soon...
cause their birthday is next week... heck I'm going to to hand deliver it!

In other news... convention is not to far off..
just 15 more day (counting tomorrow)
I can't wait to see all my friends -crafty people!

Well thanks for stoppin' by
