Happy Birthday To A Real Classic

Good Morning...Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your visit. My brother in laws birthday is next is the card I made for him. I went way out of my comfort zone on this...first I went for a distressed look and second it is 4.75 by 7.50 which is larger than I normally like to make. Had I made an A2 card, the images could barely be visible. I'm not sure I like it but there is no time to make another so I guess he's stuck with it...after all it IS the thought that counts...right? I feel that I have to wash my hands after touching it...I suppose it's mind over matter, the cardstock is new, it is just looks dirty and I feel the need to wash my that weird or what---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: 4.75" x 7.50"
Image: JenU Designs-Antique Car Stamps, Postage Date Stamps
Nestibilities: Square, Petite Oval
Font: Computer Generated-LD Post
Base Cardstock: Cordination
Printed On Cordination Cardstock-Postcard and Stamp from JenU Designs-Heritage Collection and distressed with open blade of scissors

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend! Hope to see you again on Monday!

I'm like you, I like the "cleaner" cards, but this is perfect for a male. Man cards come very hard for me. I like mine feminine. Does us good to get out of our comfort zone sometimes and see what great things we can come up with. Love your card.

Kelly, you are a card!! I cracked up reading the prelude to the picture. Do you need hand sanitizer? All kidding aside this is fantastic. I love the way the distressing makes the paper look like fabric. You combined great colors and textures. It's fun to go outside the comfort zone sometimes, and just look at what you can accomplish!! I took your advice and started a blog. If you get a chance, stop by
