I needed to make a birthday card for my hubby and this wee's sketch wasn't exactly manly. He's told me several time that boys don't like ribbon or flowers so I had to come up with a creative way to turn this sketch into a card that would be suitable. I wanted to use this image by Bugaboo so that was fine, but the large flowers were causing me a bit of a headache. I decided in the end to go for large but subtle stars in the background, with the main image layered on top. I punched the stars from the same paper I'd used for the background and inked their edges so they would show up. The rest of the sketch was no problem at all (I don't think twine counts as ribbon), and I'm happy with the result. Let's hope he is too - happy birthday honey xx
