Happy Birthday Dad

I started with a blank card from Club Scrap, but it was the wrong tone for this card, so I used Antique Linen Distress Ink to deepen the tone. Everything else is from my scrap box (I think it's mostly K&Co.)

The stamp mat is from the Sentimentals cartridge and more Antique Linen Distress Ink around the edges. Dad is from Beyond Birthdays, and sanded around the edges with an emery board. I cut a plaid mat with my tonic guillotine. The happy birthday sentiment is from Lyrical Letters cartridge and it is small (the whole sentiment is 1.75"). This is take 2 lol. The first one I cut was out of a thin scrap paper and it got very wobbly with the glue. So I tore a mat to cover the first sentiment and re cut it.  The second time I used K&Co. shimmer paper. It's the cat's meow for cutting thin letters at a small size. It keeps it's form even with glue, and, it shimmers lol. Rather than fuss with the dot for the "i" I just used a dot of stickles. Then i put some dots on the deoccorative element as well. I love the flip feature. I didn't have to load a second piece of paper for the decorative element, just the flip feature. Thanks for looking :D.
