Birthday card for my husband

Yesterday was my husband's birthday. We've celebrated 21 of his birthdays together (and on Monday it will be 21 of mine). Wasn't I smart to marry someone whose birthday is right before mine? He can't forget mine! LOL! It's hard to create something new after this many years. He used to fly planes, small ones, but he doesn't anymore (too expensive), and I've not seen Cessna 152 or 172 stamps. I've done motorcycles, but most motorcycle stamps are geared towards Harley's. He has a Kawasaki ZRX1100 (yes, I do have that memorized). He works on computers, but I've used my SU computer set a LOT & don't have another one yet. So, I was down to CHOCOLATE! ha, ha! You can never go wrong with that!

Here are the details:
Stamps: There She Goes Cupcake Mix & Match
Ink: Memento Black, Real Red
Paper: Red pre-cut card base, DP K& CO. Winter Wonderland, white
Other: Circle punches, ribbon from Michael's, copics

Challenges:
Stampin' for the Weekend: Monochromatic
Creative Card Crew:Celebrations
Gingersnap Creations: Celebrate
