Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my Dad's Birthday!!  These are the days that I wish we lived closer to family, My sisters and brothers are getting together with Dad tomorrow to celebrate!

I bought this Impression Obsession stamp a long time ago, called Newsprint, I loved the crinkle look of it so I added some more distressing to it.

The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread designs, Happy Birthday stamp set, which I won a $15 gift certificate from them a little while back and this is the set I bought.

It needed a little extra so I added a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Sprocket gear, and a couple photo turns that I am not sure of the maker.

The base was made from a piece of DCWV Old World paper, I love how thick that paper pack is.  This card is big it measures 6x6, I think the next time I use this stamp I may have to use parts of it if I want to put it on a smaller card :)

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend,
