My Dad is turning 60 in a few weeks. I wanted to make sure that I wasn't rushed at all when making his card so I completed it over the weekend. I'm really happy with how it turned out. I was inspired by a card that one of my oldest and most darling friends Joanne
made for my daughter as well as a card that I recently saw on her blog. Thanks for the inspiration love! ;)

It's a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". I love this size. I feel like it's a card size that really makes an impact. It's not often that you see a square card. The solid paper is all SU! in both River Rock and Blue Bayou. The DP is by KI Memories and is in Alpine Socks (argyle) and Alpine Fashion (winter hats). I loved the very subtle sparkle that this paper had and since my Dad has a winter birthday I thought it was perfect.

I also LOVE that Joanne lead me to this wonderful blog which is where I learned how to do the 'starburst' made from the SU! scallop punch. (thanks Jo and MJ!!) So darn clever!!!

All in all I'm REALLY happy with how this came out. I hope my Dad does as well!!

Enjoy and have a creative week!!
