Happy birthday poker joker!! Cuttlebug be inspired 22

Happy Birthday David! My hubby is 44 today I made him a card that was sure to get his attention...its all about poker. He is a poker enthusiast it is his favorite past time {understatement of the century} I say Poker joker because he is also the funniest guy I know, he gets away with murder around here because its impossible to stay mad at him hes too funny not to laugh at...I mean with, laugh with, not at.... Over at cuttlebug challenge, one of my must go check it out places,the link is on my side bar, the challenge is glitter. This card has black glitter for shine, and features the argyle embossing folder which much to my delight looks like a diamond pattern! The card is a 5x5 so I had to match up the pattern and run it part way through the bug a second time.
Stitching all around the card edge twice in a loose criss cross for a funky look. A deck of miniature playing cards gave me the accent I needed to top this card off just perfectly! I think this could also be a great scrapbook page! This double sided game night paper from Stampin'Up! couldn't be any cuter.

Yep so here it is in all its glory! There will be NO living with him , he won a POKER trophy.No not just "A" trophy the" best of the best" trophy. That makes David ....."the best of the best". HELP !! Where is this going to perch itself in my house?
This looks like a job for the Hen House crafters! Who are they? They are the fun and crazy { you know who I'm talkin"about } girls that I get together with every Thursday, we create,we talk, we share ideas, we have lunch, but most of all we LAUGH I'm serious I gotta get some waterproof mascara because I keep crying all of mine off. Every Thursday I look more like a raccoon than I do a "chick"!

I have a suggestion for the trophy, to me it looks like it would make a cool robe hook after he tires of dusting it. Congrats David
and Happy Birthday.
