Happy 33rd Birthday to Nick!

My husband, Nick, turns 33 today. We've been together since high school (15 years) and it is amazing to think that I pretty much known him over half of his life. We usually are pretty low-key for his birthday. I love that he and my sister have birthdays right next to each other. We usually celebrate them together, but this year we aren't. 

Nick and I went out for sushi last night to celebrate his birthday. I decided to call it his international birthday because we started in Japan for sushi, then headed to a downtown German pub for a liter of bier, ending the night drinking martinis and today we had Hmong eggrolls for lunch, and Italian lasagna for dinner. I even made a carrot cake, from scratch, for his cake. I'm assuming carrot cake is American, but I'd love to be wrong. It would add so much more to our international theme. 

As with my sister, I enjoy making a homemade card, but man cards are so much harder to produce. Why is that? I took a cue from the Colour Q #249 challenge and rounded up a bunch of 1/2" scraps to pull this card together lickity-split. 

I have a feeling this just might be a go-to layout, especially for the men in my life. I like that it is simple and that I can include any sentiment for whatever the occasion might be. Happy 33rd to my darling Nick!
