Daddy's Birthday

I'm Daddy's little girl... what can I say. I love my parents. I live close to them (same neighborhood), I call them all the time... they are a huge part of my life.

So, Dad celebrated his birthday on Sunday with a family BBQ. I made him this card, which turned out great. It's so masculine and rich in color... I really loved how it completed!

The card base is Really Rust with the edged sponged with Close to Cocoa. I also used Ranger Distress ink (Walnut Stain) to age the layers edges. A strip of Outlaw designer paper, Creamy Caramel, and Close to Cocoa were faux stitched together for the matte. The medallion was embossed on Very vanilla cardstock with copper embossing powder, edges sponged with Close to Cocoa. The central image was stamped in Chocolate Chip. The Sanded Background was inked with Chocolate chip and kissed off before stamping over the Horse. More sponging and distressed edges finish off the project.

The "Wanted" set has been on my wish list since day one... and I'm glad I finally caved. It's a great set to make masculine cards.

Thanks for stopping by,
