My Brother-in-law's 65th Birthday!

My B-I-L just celebrated his 65th Birthday ~ here's the card I created for him:

I used Vellum and stamped the image of the truck from the Stamp Set Countryside.  I put it over my cushion that came in the mat pack and dry embossed the image and then added color by using Stampin' Write markers.  I tore it out and sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip Ink and did an Easel Card.  The Happy Birthday is from the Bring On the Cake Stamp Set and I cut a little banner free-hand and attached with one of the Antique Brads.  The Card Base is Baja Breeze CS and the Happy Birthday was mounted onto Chocolate Chip CS and I punched the edge with the Scallop Border Punch.  The background paper was Botanical Gazette DSP ~ now retired :o( .  I used the Early Espresso/White Baker's Twine and punched the 65 with the Timeless Type Alphabet Junior Sizzlets.

I think he liked it ~ Happy 65th Michael!
