A Birthday card for my Dad!

Hey everyone!

Just sharing my dad's Birthday card! His birthday was a bit ago and I never shared it...I stole it from my parents house just to share it...I guess I was super busy and I forgot:(

Anyhow, all Graphic 45 paper and a bingo card! I used the image of the Jockey on this card because my dad was a Jockey back in the day and was really good at his craft! He was like 110-116 lbs and 5' 1" tall. He's still really mom is not even 5' tall....hence my vertically challenged self:( lol To add the cool distressed look I used distress inks and a paper distresser. The embossing didn't stop at the "Happy Birthday", I spread some of the ink and powder around the edges of the frame and I loved the look! 

I can't believe my papa is 80!!

I Love you dad!! Happy Birthday! :)

Thanks for stopping in! xo, Jules
