You're a Classic!

Hello, my lovely blog readers! How are you today?

Today I have a fun Dad card to share with you. My Dad's birthday was last week (we share the same birthday :) and this card was perfect for him. He loves hot rods, and as soon as I saw this set from Bombshell Stamps, I knew it would be great for guy cards. It is called Speed Shop and is in their Hot Rod Classic Collection. Fun!

I also made a little notebook to go along with it.

The background paper was created by randomly stamping all the stamps from the set. I just stamped 'em all over to give that collage effect. I stamped half a sheet of cardstock and had enough for both projects. The cars were colored with Copics and highlighted with the Spica markers. I also added some stitching, distressing and ink. The inside of the card says 'Happy Birthday to a real Classic!' Oh, I am so clever ;)

All the supplies I used are listed below in the recipe.
