Happy Birthday

 Hi.

A birthday card for my Dad.  It was inspired by a couple of challenges - Freshly Made Sketches, and The Male Room Challenge.

 

 


I was recently gifted a pad of the wonderful Craft Papers Ink Drops in Vivid.  The look of Alcohol inks without the mess. The pad is full of gorgeous colors.  I picked a sheet and cut 3 - 1.5 inch squares.  The Dad came from Altenew's Inline Alpha dies. The leaves are  from SSS; Etched Laurel and the base was embossed with SU's wood planks folder.


          

Thanks so much for visiting.

Oh, my, this is striking, Cat! Wow, wow! Now I see another SU folder I'd like to order. I love the paper and how it is such fabulously gorgeous contrast with the white. I do have some paper like this, maybe the same, not sure, but it's a fabulous alternative to AI inks which I never got started with, amazing as they are. Really awesome Dad card!
