Happy Bday FIL

We celebrated my FIL's 65th on Feb. 8th and alllllllll the men in this family love the outdoors.  It gets harder and harder every year so instead of coloring I decided to just play with a bunch of chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  I didn't realize it but before I gave away the card, apparently I took some very fuzzy pictures.  Oops!  But you get the idea.  

This elk piece is ANI-391 and you get 3 various sizes in the package.  I covered the piece with Frost Versamark and then covered with UTEE 3 times ... I think.  And isn't it special that I just happen to get a piece of white chunky embossing powder in there too?  OH I was so mad but ... whaddya do?  LOL!

Both of these trees are also available from SRTC and this package (NAT-382) comes with 3 trees.  First I painted both using Tim Holtz dabbers and different colors.  Then on the smaller one, I added some flower soft and then some Tim Holtz crackled paint on the bigger tree.

I just love these little clouds!!  I  bought a cloud stencil and just dabbed some structure paste and built it up so it's very puffy looking.  That's my newest thing lately.  OH and  I did he same for the bark looking papers behind too.  I colored some paste with Gelatos and used a Tim Holtz stencil and filled that in.  I love how that turned out.

Well!  That's it for me for now!!  Pretty basic man card for anyone on your list.  

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Totally different from your usual style but a wonderful card all the same.
