Love You Much, Dad

The colors this week for Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #41 were the perfect combo to create a birthday card for my dad. His birthday is the day after Valentine's, so his cards are usually dual-purpose.

The colors this week were:
Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Basic Grey, Whisper White

I used this card from ARTfelt Impressions as inspiration for the layout of my card. I didn't add ribbon, but I paper pierced around the basic gray designer paper and the word LOVE. I stamped "Feliz Cumpleanos" on the inside of the card. I love my dad very much. I'll have to order the man some books from Amazon...he is a voracious reader of all things history-related.

Thanks for looking!

This is fantastic, as usual, Anthonette. The stitched letters are beautiful!
I watched that little Iron Man You Tube you had of your little guy, too cute. My youngest was I.M. for halloween & still pulls the costume out of the costume box to zoom around.
