A Birthday Card

Good morning all!
A Very Happy 4th of July to all who celebrate!

Monday would normally have meant a post for Eureka Stamps DT
but as they are taking a break for the summer, I thought 
I'd share this card with you today instead!
It was made for my niece's husband.

I used a 6"x6" Kraft base.
The papers are from Papermania & were part of a covergift
which came with the Creativity magazine.
I distressed them with scissors & some liquid chalk ink pads.
The blueish paper was also embossed, using a brick embossing folder, before
being swiped with the chalk ink pad too.
Kraft was used for the matting & layering. 
The sentiment was die cut from Kraft too, using a Sue Wilson die.

The centre panel was wrapped with some string & popped up
on some foam pads for dimension.
The inside was decorated to match but I didn't get a photo of that!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like my little card!
Have a great day!
