Loving Father

This card is for my Dad's birthday next week.
 I'm working on using up the scraps that are all that is left of a paper pack I have had for a long time.  Most of what is remaining is too small to use for panels like these, BUT The horizontal strip gave the perfect opportunity to actually piece together smaller pieces to look like they are larger.  And no one will ever know!!  I was having so much fun with these papers, that I created another birthday card, just for fun.  I will create separate posts for the following two cards, but I just wanted to show how I'm using the scraps.

I also created a striped panel, but it hasn't made it onto a card yet.  And I still have enough bits to created another tag elements similar to this one.
Anyway, back to my main card, here is the inside:

My dad had rather serious surgery a couple weeks ago so I felt this sentiment held extra meaning this year.

Stamps: Verve "Strong Anchor"
Dies/embossing folders: Verve "Classy Label" die; Sizzix "Flower circles"

I've been reaching in to my scrap pile a lot lately. Maybe because I can't close the lid on the box anymore. LOL Such a cool card, Heather. So glad you could join us for Mojo Monday!
