Hot Air Balloon Birthday!

Hello everybody!
It's been WAY too long since I have posted, but I'm back and happy to be blogging again!  I'm sharing a card today that I made for my Dad!  His birthday was Monday, but alas, I am still holding his birthday card.  I'm going to get it in the mail tomorrow, but just had to take a quick photo and show it off a little.  I had several supplies on my desk that were just begging to be used, and I found a cute layout on Splitcoast that I modified slightly. 


All of the patterend papers are from Basic Grey, and even thought they are not all from the same set, they still seem to work together. The stamp is from Hero Arts, and I stamped it on dictionary paper that I sprayed with ink to give it a slightly different look. I like how it mimics the sky paper with it's hot air balloon flying high as well. I really love the chevron pattern here especially because of the varyied thickness of the lines. I think he will really like this card, and it makes a great theme for a guy.  The colors and patterns are fun!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Stamping!
