My Dad's Birthday is today!


My Dad's birthday is today and he still manages to play hockey 3 times a week. Good for him!!
This is my card that I gave him last week. The base card is Early Expresso with Basic Grey 'Cappella' on the top half and green Fibermark paper on bottom. There is 2" strip and 1/4" circle that is from the  Basic Grey 'Cappella' collection. I took Always Artichoke paper and stamp using a Birthday background stamp that retired from Stampin'Up. Inked with Top Boss and used the new perfect pearl collection called 'Cafe'. Wrapped a green ribbon from Michael's around the strip and layered the dark green paper on top. Stamp Happy Birthday in green pigment ink and embossed with Emerald PearLustre Embossing powder from Stampendous. Used Always Artichoke to tone down the white cardstock. Punched out 2 scallop ovals from Marvy Uchida scalloped oval. Cut 1 oval lengthwise and 1 oval widthwise to create a mat around the Happy Birthday.
