From The Heart Inspiration

Here I am with an inspiration post for From The Heart Stamps, and another card asked for by my daughter for a friend of hers.
"He likes real ale" was the brief.
Birdbrain Brew to the rescue...

The woodgrain paper is from My Mind's Eye, Stella & Rose, Mabel.
I printed the sentiment off the computer because my daughter wanted Hoppy BEERday rather than Hoppy Birthday which is one of the sentiments that you will get for free when you buy this fab image.
The letters to spell out his name were die-cut years ago. They were originally cut from yellow card using Quickutz 'Marisa' alphabet dies. I didn't have an 'i' nor a 'v', and I don't have the dies so that I could cut more, so I used another 'a'  and a 'w' and trimmed them down, then coloured them with a promarker because I wanted them green.

I'm entering this card at:
