My husband is celebrating his 75th birthday tomorrow and I quickly put this card together for him after nearly forgetting to make his card as the month of September just flew by in a whoosh! He's always loved horses, so I stamped a Serendipity horse image on the corner of the card base, coloring with Copics and fine line markers. I used a snippet of SU! retired striped dsp and added a MFT notched die with a snippet of kraft for the border. I used another snippet of SSS white embossed cardstock and die-cut it with a MFT stitched circle die, then added the I.O. die cut numbers cut from a snippet of gold matte cardstock. I added some tiny gold beads along with a pre-printed sentiment backed with a matching snippet of kraft.
I had another small snippet of striped dsp left so I cut it and adhered it to the envelope flap to make the card a wee bit more festive.
Whew! Just under the wire I have his card made, that was cutting it close!
I'll enter this card into the following challenges:
The Snippets Playground #437 - must use snippets
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - card + matching envelope
Seize the Birthday#247 - A/G with an option of food
Allsorts Challenge week 695 - A/G w/option of spots and/or stripes
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all enjoy this first week of beautiful fall weather!
