Belated Birthday Revised

Update: This post was first published on December 28, 2009 and quickly taken down for editing and rework on the images. When I uploaded it anew I noticed it fit Mo's Challenge #13 for the new year. Now isn't that the best outcome for procrastinating and perfectionism?

As our busy schedule drastically dropped off to a crawl on Christmas Day, I began to catch up on a few things. One item waiting for me in my Craft room was a card for my dear hubby. It was his birthday on December 1st and I was busy with other projects and holiday schedules, so it was set aside for two reasons. I colored the image and didn't have a plan for the card design and the other reason was because my hubby didn't want me staying up late nights on a card for him. So it's nearly a month past his birthday and I've finished it. LOL Give me an inch and I'll take a mile. {wink}

He's seen it already but I can't post without saying "Happy Birthday" to my wonderful husband, super father to our two children and my bestfriend. You're the best!

He loves to read books and play computer games based on sci-fi and fantasy, so this is my attempt at that style. It is a leather covered book of wishes as the title on the tag implies "Tome of Endless Wishes".

Oops! Something fell out! [photo removed] Not really. {giggle} I made the wizard image detachable so my hubby could take it out of the card and hang it on the wall of his office cubicle.

Here it is by itself. I colored three images so I could paper tole to give added dimension.

And if you haven't completely gotten tired of my ranting on here is the detail of the back of the card. All done with paper.

Hope you enjoyed my special project! Thanks for hanging on to the end. {wink}
