Happy Birthday Honey!

Today is my sweetie's birthday and this is the card I made for him.  I know it's not a 'typical' birthday card, but it's very fitting for him.  My sweetie's hobby is brewing beer.  I'm not a beer drinker, so I can't really say if his beer is good.  However friends and family say it is and keep asking for more so it must be!!  This card was also my first attempt at a welded card.  I got the beer mug image from Smiley Cards and hid contours on my Gypsy.  I also cut out the main image 2 extra times - once in a yellowish-brown color to represent the beer, and again in vellum to lay over the beer layer in an attempt to make it look more like it was in a mug.  I aded some jewels to represent the bubbles in the beer and added swirls to the foam on top.  The 'Cheers' wording is the Phrase layer of the mug.  Hope he likes it!
