Birthday in Green (and Blue)

A special friend of mine is celebrating a birthday shortly and I always struggle with masculine cards. I wanted to use the new stamp and die combination set from CTMH called Share the Joy. 

I decided on a combination of shades of green with some blue for emphasis. The primary green that I used was Willow. 

The images inside the circles were each stamped, coloured and then fussy cut. I suppose with some strategic placement, they could be stamped behind the circle on a single piece of cardstock but that would take some very carefully placement. I wanted them to be raised for emphasis which is why I chose to fussy cut them instead. I added a heart as well - just because :)

The background is created from two different patterned papers and a piece of embossed cardstock. I tied two pieces of twine around the edge of the image piece and used the same twine for the tag. 

This will go in the mail tomorrow - arriving in plenty of time for his birthday.
