Happy Birthday to you

Hi guys, it's hubby's birthday soon and I just couldn't resist this gorgeous stamp from Lily of the Valley, it's one of the new ones and I bought it from their fabby shop the other week, if you get chance to go to the shop do go, it's well worth it,
they have a monthly challenge  too, which I'm going to enter this in lol,

I've coloured Take it easy with my distress re-inkers and mated it onto kraft card stock,
the fabby papers are from My Crafty Heart and are from the Prima lifetime pad and Almanac pad,  I love how Prima pads go so well together,
The metal corner die and the Joy die bottom left I have added frantage too in aged Ivory, the Joy die 6002/0149 I just cut in card stock first then added my frantage on top then heated and did another layer on top of that, to finish it off I added a brad for a little detail, love how this stuff makes card look like metal lol,

Closer view of Take it easy,

To finish off the card I used some brown and cream bakers twine from the pretty little ribbon shop, which has a closing down sale on too at the moment and I added a clock charm from My Crafty Heart too,

To get hubby to be like this will be a miracle though as he never stops and I'm constantly telling him to have a rest, do you think he may get the hint?!!!!!! lol
