B'day card for Lars

Another sunny day here in Sweden. Must say that I do not really want to spend it indoors to finish of the tax declarations, but I guess I have to......
Just wanted to share the card that I made for my brother-in-law who turned 40 yesterday.

I coloured Charlie Bond from WoJ with my copics - I think he is just perfect when you need to make more masculine cards - if you know what I mean. Cut him out with my nesties.

I also printed out the Swedish Happy B'day song. Teared the paper and chalked the edges with pine cone. Added some buttons from stash and cut out Lars and 40 with my Revolution. Alphabet = Eliza.
My brother-in-law is an electrician - so I found some cables to attach to the card. Can't say that it was easy to make them stick to the papers...hihi....

Added some dew drops as well and highlights with my white gel pen.

This time I even got the time to make the inside of the card. Not as nice as my lovely blog- friends Rach, Marlene and Judy, but... I wanted to make a fun collage with Lars and went to My Heritage - to see what celebreties he lookes like. If you have not tried this - it's so much fun ;-)) Used the left overs from my DP and chalked the edges with Pine cone. I also printed out the meaning of his name - Lars.

Well - hope you all will have a sunny day and time to enjoy it.
Kramis - Anki
