3 "stripes" have been embossed on; very subtle, I know! I had to a closeup photo to show 'em.
Circles are more obvious: punched out and the dots on the DSP. The hole is actually Susan's idea and I quote:
you CAN punch/die-cut a circle out of the front of your card. That's not adding a layer.
So punch I did! and it's still one layer.
I sponged around the hole on my first attempt and it just looked 'dirty'. I'm sticking to the simplicity of this one. For good measure, I added a little bow - Stampin Up's Baja Breeze seam binding to match the sentiment; gotta love SU coordination. :)
Hubby will love this one. He better!
