Happy Birthday Husband!

Ryan is turning 32!

And he still loves soccer like he's 12 years old.... and so this card is for him.
 
Our family is truly lovers of the beautiful game.  We spend a lot of time on the fields playing, coaching and watching.  My husband is a devoted Manchester United fan.  So much so that I got a signed Rooney jersey for my wedding gift for him and we have named our dog Rooney after their star player (but not for long..).
When I did this card, I couldn't stop there because I took this card out of my big shot and was practically drooling!!!  To make the card I simply punched out the hexagons using the new Stampin' Up! punch.  I then put it through the big shot using the circle framelits so that it was perfectly round.   The background is gumball green cardstock with the lattice embossing folder.  I also swiped some of the gumball green ink over the top for some dimension.
And then I had to play around one more time to use the hexagons as a background.  I also placed this card front through the big shot with the perfect polka dots embossing folder.  
Here's a family photo... its old and from before Jack was born but ... you get the point...

Happy Birthday Ryan!
Now let's go to lunch!!
Love you!
Cathy
