Sending Hugs

My father in law turned 88 recently and this is the card that I sent. It was hard to get a good picture of this vellum image and the stickers in the corner are really black but they are kind of glittery and the shine off those was hard to capture also.  The embossing folder used in the background is one my hubby bought for his artwork, so I thought his Dad might also like it :)

Such a pretty card for your FIL. Stickers are hard to make look nice and you pulled this off exceptionally well. I'm on the hunt for that very same embossing folder.

I think birds are always good for masculine cards, and they make me happy, as well. This image is particularly beautiful. Cool embossing folder, too!

It's hard for me to make masculine cards when I like to use bright colors, mostly pin. Your card is awesome with the darker embossed background and the cute bird diecut. Great job Connie!
