FIL Bday

Hello!! I have a personal creation to share with you today!! This is a birthday card that I made for my Father In Law for his special day at the end of the month. The image is from a fantastic site Mo's Digital Pencil Shop.

The image reminds me of my FIL and my darling daughter. I kept everything very simple as it is a card for a man. And my FIL doesn't like floof and fluff. The simpler the better. But I know he'll appreciate this image and card.
My base is from my scrap drawer - as that was my New Year's "agreement" with myself. Try to use my scraps before cutting into fresh paper!! The only paper that is not scrap is the paper that the image is printed on. Other than that...all scrap!!

I layered the card base with a scrap of Kraft, another slightly lighter shade of blue and then the image itself colored with my Copics and sparkly Sakura gel pens and 3 mixey/matchy brads.
The interior has a small strip of green, argyle paper for added visual interest and it simply says "Happy Birthday" using an old SU! set.

I can't wait to send this out!!!

You MUST go check out Mo's site!! Her designs are simply stunning!!

Thanks for visiting!!
