Lucky to have you in my life Challenge

Not sure what happened with my last post. I said I entered it into 2 challenges, one being the weekly Heart2Heart challenge, but on checking back later in the week, I discovered that I hadn't added it to either of the places that I should have. I thought I remembered doing that, but I guess not. Maybe being busy getting ready to go out of town and age have something to do with that! Haha. It's quite a process to do everything that needs done to get a post ready. Make the project, take pictures of the project, upload pictures to computer, take them into photo program and do whatever you gotta do to them (which I don't know a whole lot about), save them, then go create your post and get everything in it, then go link it to whatever your wanting to link it to. That leaves quite a lot of areas where you could leave something out, especially when your in a hurry. So I completed all the challenges at Heart 2 Heart in February, but you won't see that over there.
Heart 2 Heart's challenge this week is to make a card for someone you are lucky to have in your life and also to use the color green. March is a month full of birthdays of friends and family so I chose to make a card for one of them. Green is good for a masculine card, so that's what I chose to do. I am combining that with the Mojo Monday 232 card sketch challenge. Here is the sketch.
And here is my card. I used patterned paper from Close To My Heart's Stella and a small piece from an old paper pack called Rustic Trail. I used CTMH's ink colors: Bamboo, Desert Sand, Olive, and Stazon Black. I used a stipple brush for the background and used 3 of the ink colors mentioned. Most of the stamp sets were retired stamp sets. I used our twill for the ribbon.
And the inside:
Now off to create more birthday cards.
