Hambo Hump Day

A good friend of mine just celebrated her 50th birthday and here's a little peek at what I gave her. I gave her a bottle of my favorite champagne and adorned it with a cute little tag using images from Hambo.
Here's a close up of some of the details on the tag. I used a green polka dot pattern by Scenic Route and punched circles with a scrap of magenta colored cardstock. And no project of mine would be complete without some piercing, so I poked around the edges to finish it off.
Here's a close up of Hambo's grumpy little bug.
He's actually part of their Christmas line, but I just inked up the part that I needed so it would work for my project. I think he pairs perfectly with the sentiment don't you?

For the card, I used some more of that green pattern and magenta circles along with some shimmery paper from KI Memories. The shimmery paper is actually Christmas themed scrapbook paper, but I just punched out images of presents and turned it into a birthday card.
Instead of using a stamp for my main image, I used some chipboard numbers. I applied heat and stick powder to them and added black glitter to make it SPAR-KA-LAY!

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to check out the Hambo blog tomorrow for the "One & Done" digital auction. Happy bidding!
