Feliz Cumpleanos

I have been busy. Extremely busy. Seriously. Busy. I am sure, though, that so many of you out there can say the same thing. Teacher's appreciation that just passed...Kindergarten graduation for my class...end of the year projects for my boys...end of the year projects for teachers...Scrapbooks for all the kids in my class... blah blah blah blah blah... etc... :-)
Now, I have added card making to my list - and after making those few handmade cards - now that is what is expected and my OCD has to live up to that expectation. I'm not complaining...I'm just saying! Hahahahaha!
On to my card -
This card is for my father in law in New York. Of course, I could've sent him a store bought card, but now my husband requests handmade stuff! So this is what I came up with. I didn't like it at first. I know a few ways I could've made it better. Do you all feel that way? It's been sent too late!
Details: The card base is SU Baja Breeze. The DP is SU Muirfield. The stamp is from SU Thoughts and Prayers. I colored the tree with Old Olive and Chocolate Chip SU onto SU Whisper White backed on SU Kiwi Kiss. The Feliz Cumpleanos stamp is SU Felicidades Siempre. The netting is Champange Net you can get from Stamp and Create. The buttons are from my stash.
I am entering this in Our Creative Corner Challenge - Masculine Birthday. Also in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge 112 - Someone Special because my father in law is a pretty special guy!
Thanks for looking!
