Puck! I Missed Your Birthday!

Hiya!  I'm popping in to share a birthday card I made for my lovely and crafty friend Jasmine's husband.  I'm only, oh, about a month late with it, but I figure handmade is worth the wait.  lol  They are both huge hockey and Bruins fans!  He plays too.  (Not for the Bruins.  Just thought I'd clarify that.)  So I thought HOCKEY from Kenny K combined with the "Puck" sentiment from Graphicat Designs would be perfect for his 40th.  And when I planned it out the Bruins stood a chance of winning the Stanley Cup.  Sadly, it didn't end that way, but I still went with the color scheme anyway.  The image is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  Papers are from an old DCWV stack I had laying around.  Masculine cards are always a little tricky for me since we know how much I love my embellishments!   But I kept this one simple, adding only black organdy ribbon and black flat back pearls.  My layout is courtesy of Sketch Saturday (#230).  Their current challenge, in order to celebrate her birthday, is to pick any of designer Jen's past sketches.  I really liked this one and never used it when it debuted.  

I was able to hand deliver this card on Sunday when I met Jasmine, her hubby, and son for a day of fun with the kids at Edaville USA's A Day Out with Thomas!  Here are few Instamoments:

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back tomorrow with Jasmine's birthday card.  Her birthday IS tomorrow and since she actually received her card early, I think that makes up a bit for her DH's being so late!

Hope everyone is looking forward to a fabulous weekend!  I know I am!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, R32, N0, N2, N6, N8, Y32, Y35, Y38).
