60th birthday

My Dad is celebrating his 60th birthday next week and let me tell you that you would never know it!  So this sentiment is perfect.  His favorite color is brown, so of course I had to add that in there, and teal and brown are such a perfect pairing, it was an easy color combo.  The flourishes are stamped in an olive green to add just a bit more interest.

Charisma Cardz Challenge: Happy Birthday
Make It Monday #110--collage elements (all credit due: I pretty much used the same layout that Dawn McVey used on the technique video--just reversed the layout of the main panel)
Eureka Stamps #33--stripes and/or circles

Stamps: PTI "Big Birthday Wishes" sentiment, and "Mat Stack 2" fancy frames; Clear Dollar Stamps "Elegant Flourishes"; Hero Arts French Script
Dies: PTI "By the Numbers" die; Verve "Scalloped Trim Trio"
Cuttlebug dots embossing folder (used on the bottom third of the white panel)

This is a wonderful card. The flourishes add such life to the card.

PS - You cannot even tell that it came from Dawn's layout. That's the beauty of stamps and color. Plus you added that wonderful texture with the embossed strip.
