Happy Birthday to My Sweetie!

If you're looking for hearts today, you won't find them here.  Today is not just Valentine's Day, it's my husband's birthday  :)  He hates sharing a birthday with V-Day (as he says, have YOU ever tried to give someone else a present on your birthday?) and would probably rather ignore the fact that he has a birthday at all, but I won't let him do that.  So I made him a card.

I was looking through the SCS color challenges that I hadn't done yet and ran across Close to Cocoa and Night of Navy, which made me laugh--I often tease Lee that all his clothes are khaki, gray, black, or navy blue, so pretty much all neutrals (what, I consider navy blue to be a neutral).  So here's his manly neutral-color birthday card, which is based on this week's Nacho sketch:

Love the sketch, though I'm not 100% in love with my card.  Let's be honest, I'm rarely 100% in love with my creations, but that just leaves me room to improve, right?

Happy birthday to Lee, and happy Valentine's Day to everyone else :)
