Happy 85th Birthday to my Daddy

Daddy turned 85 last week.  He had felt really bad for a while and is finally back to his old self.  Doesn't feel GREAT, but doesn't feel 105 any more.  So thankful.  I was concerned that he might not be around for his next birthday if he didn't get better . . . so, very thankful and hopeful that we will have him to celebrate many more birthdays.

 
This is the card I made for his birthday.  I used some Ippity stamps from the set So Very Happy for his birthday card.  I stamped it using distress inks on the kraft paper.  Then I colored the leaves using a Marvy Uchida marker.  It's hard to see, but the square in the lower righthand corner says Happy Birthday.  I used a Fiskars punch for my cardinal--just had to have that punch!!  This is a very clean and simple card, but I was happy with the way it turned out.

Happy Birthday to your Dad! Your card is wonderful! I love the cardinal in the tree and the fence is a great addition to the scene.
