Happy 83rd Birthday.....

Hi my Crafty Friends!!!

Recently my father-in-law celebrated 
his 83rd birthday.  I had originally planned
to make this card a shaker card but I 
forgot to put the acetate down first before
I put all the foam mount all along the frame
part of this card.  I didn't want to peel off 
and waste all that foam mount so I just
made it a framed up card.  I think it came out
nice and the colors I used made it a masculine
looking card.  I am just loving these large

I am entering this into a few challenges:

Simply Papercrafts ~ #24 Anything Goes
Love to Scrap ~ Three's a Crowd
Crafting From the Heart ~ #101 Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown ~ #283 Frame It

Thank you very much for stopping by!
hugs, Heidi
