Hubby's birthday card

Here's the card I made for my husband's birthday which is coming up on Monday. I also made multiples of this card for a card swap group this past week and I wouldn't let my husband see them. I took them all to card swap and didn't have any left to bring home. So I made up another one just for him. :) The card fits in well with Birthday Sundaes challenge #1 since it's anything goes. I took apart a chain that was in the "vintage" jewelry making section of the scrapbooking store. I distressed the wooden sign with sandpaper and distress ink and then stamped the sentiment and left the sign free hanging. I also used distress ink on the black sign holder to give it a more worn look and used black dimensionals.Thanks for stopping by.
