Seize the Birthday #4 and a February Calendar

Here's my card for this week's Seize the Birthday #4 challenge which is to follow the sketch and make a masculine card. I used a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamp set for this, embossing the image on a scrap of retired SU! dsp and embossing it with clear detail ep. The tickets were stamped & embossed on scraps of blue & red, and I added some red, blue and white twine to the top of the vertical panel which was edged with a SU! spiral punch and lined with a strip of red card stock. The sentiment is from SNSS and the embossed background was done with a Hero Arts ef. For the final touch, I added 3 mini brads to the wheels on the antique car.



And this is Heidi's February calendar page. I really like the heart-shaped woven-paper at the top! I'm really loving those squared off heart edges! Thanks for giving me another fun month of your creativity Heidi :)

I hope to be back later with more if I can get enough daylight to get a good picture, so maybe I'll see you later! Make it a great Friday, and thanks for stopping by!

What a wonderful look to have that car embossed right on that paper. Your tickets look so real if I didn't know better I'd think that they were your left over tickets from some event. Great job. Heidi has done it again! There is so much love exuding from this calendar page. A truck full of hearts and love, it doesn't get any better than that. The quilted heart with the square edges is so very pretty. Even the detail of the bumpy road surface is amazing. It's February and cold but I'm sure you feel a lot of warmth having this calendar in your home.
