Happy Birthday!

I made this card for my dad's birthday tomorrow!
Once again I struggled with making a masculine card and not knowing where to start.  So I picked out the paper from Echo Park's 'A Boy's Life' and then picked the truck from Pop-Up Neighborhood cricut cart.  Then I got the idea to stamp the balloons, cut them out and then tie them to the truck with twine from The Twinery!  I really love the way this turned out!

The balloon stamps as well as the sentiment stamps were from The Stamps of Life 'greetings4birthday' and 'HappyBday2You' - I do love these stamps, they stamp perfectly and have fun sentiments!

Its hard to see in the picture but I used glossy accents on the truck's window to make it look more real!
I'm entering this into Challenge #46 at Birthday Sundaes:  Birthday card with sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!  I unfortunately, will be working the next 3 nights, so not much fun for me!  ;-)
