Hi there 🙂 I have another birthday card for a work associate today. He happens to be a year and a half older than me, with the key word being older! You can bet your last dollar that I never let him forget it!! I used a free page from Coloring Book Cafe for this card. I colored this guy up with my Copics, then cut the image out with a circle die. I had some tiny letter stickers, so I personalized the mug, too.

I found a really cool forest print background paper, that I thought would be perfect for this card. I started layering the card, inking the large DAM die cut a bit for a bit more interest, and adding the second part of the sentiment on a stamped banner. The wood die cuts were the perfect addition!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
