Birthday Madness

March really is the month for birthdays, so I have yet another birthday card, this one featuring a SOG image, Mad Hatter Kody.
This card is for a guy so I kept the patterns quite plain and didn’t go for any embellishments other than the die cuts.  Aren’t those teacups cute?  The recipient is a teetotaller, literally, he drinks tea (not coffee) at work all day.

I followed the sketch at this month’s challenge on the SOG blog although I moved my sentiment to fit my theme and flipped the sketch on its side.  I always thought it was the Mad Hatter who was having an unbirthday tea party but turns out it was Humpty Dumpty who got the unbirthday present so instead I used the raven riddle for my sentiment.  It follows through to the inside, where I printed my sentiment on some cardstock before cutting my frame.

  1. What a brilliant card! I just love the teacup and teapot details. Fab colours and the glitter is an ace touch. Thanks for joining us at SOG this month and good luck... X
