Happy Birthday to my Love!

I had such a tough time trying to decide on the theme for my boyfriends birthday card ~ and then it hit me! He really likes scratch tickets and cash (who doesn't LOL) - this years card will be perfect! My first thought was to use something from the new Billionaire cart but since I don't have it yet - I used the Santa sack from PDDU (used DS to take off a couple of lines w. hide contour), layered the bag on a parchment colored paper, then ran it through the Cuttlebug with Forrest Branches, and put a ribbon up the side.  I had first attempted to make a shaped card and that was a no-go - so i used one of the cuts as a mask and spritzed it just a little with the Walnut Ink in Willow.  It worked well & also inked a little bit of the edges with a brown chalk ink from Joanns. Using my favorite i-rock tool, the biggest detail was the $ dollar sign in the green bling. It took a few minutes to get the design perfected but came out just as I had imagined! I put 4 more "pearl" i-rock blings down the side. Inside says Happy Birthday and its stuffed with instant scratch tickets! I have to say I used my Papertrey Ink paper for the first time - and its AWESOME!!! Cuts sooo nice - Like butta! Lol. Enjoy!
Happy Birthday Lovey - hope its a great one!
