Birthday Wolf

I need two more birthday cards this month. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to get things done. Saturday is my youngest's birthday. He will always be my baby even though he'll be 26 years young this weekend. Time flies when they are growing up. And he's my next wedding. He will marry his sweetheart next May. So more wedding bells in our future. His favorite animal has always been a wolf. So I decided to use that as my theme.
I loosely used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

And here's my card:

The wolf is really my oval from the sketch. It's a 2006 set from Stampin' Up! called Wildlife Reserve. And the trees are also an old set but one of my favorites from Stampin' Up! called Lovely as a Tree. I decided to keep the trees plain and make the wolf stand out by coloring him and also popping him up from the background. I heat embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment, from Hero Arts, with Tim Holtz Distress Walnut Stain embossing powder. Then add three star brads. I really like the way it turned out. I hope he does too!
I am entering these challenges:
I am feeling better today. I went back to work and had several meetings. They always make me tired so I hope to sleep good tonight. The weather is supposed to be a little warmer this week. I think they are predicting 60'sso I hope to get out and do some walking while I still can. Make it an awesome Wednesday, friends!
