My Brother-in-Law's 70th birthday card...


Well - Bob and I went out to his beloved big brother's birthday dinner in Lawrenceville NJ and it was wonderful...so good to see the family...and my sister-in-law Ann does everything top notch so every little detail was seen to and absolutely splendid- really she has impeccable taste to die for...so I made a special card for Richard...I used retired US Stampin' Up! stamps, but my demo sisters in other countries may have these available to them...I apologize for the picture not being the best...gotta work on that...but IRL the card was fab...my DH even said so so that is certainly saying something...I used classic convertibles and the saying from the classic truck set, and the flannel plaid BG stamp...I used water color paper for both saying and main image, water colored with my aqua painters, 2 red bold bright buttons with linen thread and some red plaid ribbon. I backed the buttons with 3/4 inch punches of black paper which I think made them pop...all in all...I really liked it!!
