You're a Classic Card


The month of May is full of birthdays in our family and many of them are for the guys. My dad, brother and father-in-law all have their birthday within seven days of each other. Well, mine falls in that timeline too, but we don't have to talk about that! My dad's birthday is the first one and so I've made this You're a Classic Card for him. I used a pre-colored digital image and sentiment from Doodle Pantry. The layout is from the current sketch at Retro Sketches. To add a little antiqued look I used a charcoal chalk ink around the edges of the image and gumball green dsp. The black banner is dry embossed with the square lattice embossing folder by Stampin' Up! Now that's one card down and two to go. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

My You're a Classic Card is entered into the following challenges:
