Another Birthday Card!

Grandma's bday is on the 14th, but grandpa's is on the 22nd. So tonight I threw together a quick card. I have to admit making a masculine card is very difficult, but I just picked some NON girlish colors and went with it. lol took me 10 minutes to craft this while chatting with my friend Laurie on Skype. :) I wanted to go with a "retro" look since my grandpa is older. LOL (much older! haha)

So, here is the card. the image from inkadinkado was stamped in versamark and then heat embossed in black. I took my embossing glue pen and colored the flames in with it and then covered them in orange embossing powder and heat embossed them. I put star dust stickles on the flames so when you move the card it looks like they are sparking. (it's cool!)
I just used some stripped grosgrain ribbon and tied a knot. I used zots (glue dots) to hold down the ribbon and attach the image. I inked the image edges iwth colorbox stacked ink. I used a corner punch that my BFF Leslie gave me to round the corners. the deco paper is from the FAT stack that I got from LTD commodities. inside the card I stamped a birhtday wishes sentiment from Scrappy Cat (no pic of inside of card shown, sorry!)

Keep on Scrappin' and please, be kind to one another!
