Happy Birthday, Dad!!

Today is my dad's birthday. I'm giving him a cornbread mix that he requested the recipe for. I think he'll be pleased. Here's the card I came up with...
I KIND OF tried the Michelle Zindorf style, though I didn't brayer, I sponged. And it's nowhere NEAR her ability level, but I still love the look of it. (If you haven't visited Michelle's blog, DO!!!! Prepare to be amazed.) I recently got the reverse image stamp...well, I recently got the amazing deer stamp as well, so it's the first time they've both been inked up! I fussy cut the embossed leaves again for this one and think it adds a great tough. I used SU chocolate chip and not quite navy cardstock. And here's Dad...and yes, he REALLY is amazing!

I have this stamp, but this is just stunning! I don't think that I could compete.
