Happy Birthday Dad

It's my Dad's birthday today, so of course I made a card for him. I used Card Sketch #46 from Sketch-n-Scrap and I'm managing to link up just before today's deadline.

It's a simple sketch, but I made a few versions of the card before I had one that I was happy with. I matted the main design on contrasting cardstock and all my stripes are the same length. I also moved the sentiment onto one of my paper strips.

All the strips came from the same scrap of stripey paper, so they have the same texture although they are all different colours. The star is an old button, and I added sprinklings of mist and clear sequins.
