TCC #7, Time Out #2 and another birthday

Hello, all.  It's another good day for . . .well, for anything you want to do.  My husband is out riding his bike and I'm blogging so I get some challenges entered before the deadline.  Here's my card.


Can you guess what challenges it's for?  The Card Concept and Time Out.


The butterfly is a Cricut cut (I just ordered a butterfly die that I wish I'd had  for this challenge.)  I hid the contours on the image and after embossing it with Verdigris embossing powder, I inlaid the original in the card front.  Then I cut again with all the contours, embossed that image with gold and glued it over the other.  The sentiment from CASual Friday is stamped in Delicata gold.  I guess all that shimmer and shine qualifies it as a Classy and Elegant card for the Card Concept, although it is clean, too.

------------------------------

Today is my Dad's birthday.


Here's his birthday card.  


Yesterday was my great grandson's birthday and I didn't have a picture of the card but my granddaughter sent it to me.


Distress Inks on the large dot stencil makes the background.  The balloons are from Simon Says Stamp cut from photo paper and inked, giving them a gloss.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

  9. Happy belated birthday to dad and great grandson! (How do you even have a great grandson looking as young as you do??) (Also I just noticed your birthday is the day after mine. Go leos!)
    Anyway, I LOVE your first card. Clean and crisp and the gold and green glitter look so classy together. Great shine without being excessive.
    The plaid number on dad's card are awesome and I LOVE the polka dots on the last card!
