Etsy Inspired Birthday

My mojo needed a bit of a spark so I decided to participate in Etsy Inspired Challenge #86 to make this card for my darling hubby whose birthday is today! I love the soothing earthy colours of Isabell's Umbrella, whose shop is the inspirational subject for this week's challenge. I was easily inspired by what I saw! I quickly thought of Pink Cat Studio's Cuddles which I hadn't used yet. I coloured the little guy and then picked my papers. I used the owl sentiment from Tiny Treats: Valentine to create a light scripted background on the side and Birthday Basics for the main sentiment. I used a very simple layout to keep the card cool and masculine but I know hubby will love it no matter what. :)
