hand-lettered birthday surprise

My husband’s birthday was last week, and he tends to enjoy experiences over tactile gifts, so I thought I’d try to lean into that more this year and surprise him with a day-trip to Chattanooga, which is about 2 hours away. This event was a good enough excuse to practice more hand-lettering, which has interested me lately, so I went a little overboard designing the reveal in the card I made. Overboard or not, I’m proud and he was totally surprised. All around, a huge win!
