It was my husband’s birthday this past weekend and we got away for a long weekend to Budapest to celebrate! It was great to go on a little mini-break from London and we had a wonderful time taking in the sites and food (probably spent more time taking in the latter!).
I wasn’t very prepared with a birthday card and put this together quickly last night when I gave him his present. I went back & forth about whether or not to share it – definitely not my best or most creative card – but still a bit sweet & colorful!
I made this card for the Wee Memories Color Challenge & Lawnscapings Challenge – make your own background paper challenge. I used the star from Lawn Fawn – Bake a Cake to make the background. The rest of the goodies are Cosmo Cricket – my sweet guy loves when I make cards with those cute chipboard critters.
Here are a couple pictures of us enjoying Budapest!
