HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD! I LOVE YOU!
OK, remember these 2 little rascals, Hayden & Mack? They’re my dad’s & his wonderful wife’s (hi, Mary!) 2 sweet kitties; and yes, they’re brothers 🙂 (p.s. my dad took this pic – he’s a photographer 🙂 )
Yep, they’re the stars of the day on this fun, masculine birthday card I made with the new stamp set, Newton’s Birthday Bash!
I made a traditional A2 size card, and added a pocket on the front to add a gift card. The die to make the pocket is by Avery Elle – Simply Tags Love Notes Die
The papers are all from My Mind’s Eye Kate & Co. – Oxford Lane
And the perfect final touch to this funny scene was the Zig Wink of Stella shine I added to the balloon, the gift’s tissue paper, and the birthday hats
