I think the card turned out okay! :o) And even if it turned out looking HIDEOUS, my grandfather would still LOVE it because it came from me. LOL
This picture turned out a little blurry, but I included it because the colors were closer to the 'real' colors than the one below.
I used white cardstock for the card blank, a pastel blue for the background on the front, a pastel yellow cut with a scalloped edge on the Cricut (via SCAL) and green pastel for the top piece. I used my corner rounder to round the edges of the green paper and embossed "Happy Birthday" with blue. The ribbon is blue & yellow plaid. Who knows where it came from, but my grandfather LOVES plaids.
This is the back of the card. My personalized stamps haven't arrived yet (boohoo). I wanted to put it on the back, so I printed the proof sheet onto white cardstock, 'colored' the flowers & leaves with Le Plume II markers and used a little adhesive to affix it. Quick & Easy!!!
So, let me know what you think!
