Vintage Birthday

It has been a long time since I needed a male card, generally the fall time is when I have the most masculine birthdays.

I used mega flakes on the gear border, the base was kraft cardstock.  I do like the look of it on the kraft.  Still learning though on how much glue to use. I tried it first for the truck but wasn't really liking my results so I ended up embossing the truck with gold embossing powder.



Tim Holtz -- The Journey stamp set, embossed with gold embossing powder
Spellbinders -- Lg. Deckled Rectangles dies
Memory Box -- Gearworks Border die
Indigoblu -- Mega flakes, Morris Dance
DCWV -- Old world and metallic papers
Photo Corners

Hope you enjoy a lovely weekend, yesterday and today are great temps here, we will be getting a little bit of rain Sunday morning, but that is always a good thing for the garden.  Continued prayers going out to all those dealing with drought and these terrible fires.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today, love hearing from you,

Connie
