Blue Bayou Birthday Birdie

Today I thought I would share the card I made for my Dad's birthday. I used the cute little bird image from my new Spring Song set. He's stamped on water color paper and then water colored using my SU! classic inks.

For the background, I had to resist the urge to grab my Weathered stamp, since the last couple cards I sent my Dad used that stamp I figured I better use something different. I hadn't used my Paisley background in a while so I grabbed that along with the Flannel Plaid to create this "manly" background. Both the Blue Bayou and Kraft layers are stamped with Blue Bayou ink. I separated the two with a strip of twill tape and some black vintage brads.

The sentiment from It's Your birthday was embossed with Black Detail EP. When I showed this card to my hubby he asked what the HB was for? When I replied Happy Birthday he said, "oh, I thought it stood for Hey Bob." (my dad's name) *rolls eyes* Hopefully my dad will figure it out!
Have a good one!

Great background! I would never have thought to use Paisley on a "guy" card, but it's perfect here. I think your dad will figure out the HB - mine did!

I love this! I never thought to use Paisley for a manly card but it definitely works here. This is great! My dh would probably say the same thing about the HB as yours did :-)
