OCLDT04 Happy Birthday Dad!

Hello Stampers... hope you are having a great weekend so far. Sunday is my Dad's birthday.  We are going out to dinner later today to celebrate, then back to the house for cake and ice cream.  My kids love singing happy birthday and of course having cake and ice cream.

For his card, I'm using the OCLDT04 Sketch Challenge over at The Lounge.  I used my Ranger ink and distressing wood tool thingy with my craft mat to add the ink around the edges, then I colored and added all the sparkle and shazam after.  I used the stamp set from OCL called The Tribe... it's one of my favorites.  

 I used Sparkly Fluff on the feathers and some of  his garb, plus Clear Sakura Glaze on the bones.  I even added some Distress Crackle Paint to the skull on the side.
I think my Dad will really love it.... 


The cardstock base is Pickle from Bazzill.  The designer paper is from a 6x6 paper pad by Basic Grey called Mellow.  That cool wood looking cardstock I got from the Paper Temptress.  It came all textured like that... love that stuff!  You can click on the photos for a closer look. 


I even stamped the inside!  


It's not too late to come and hang with us over at The Lounge.  Both sketches (OCLDT03, OCLDT04) are still open for the drawing on April 1st.  Plus, there will be another sketch posted on Friday!  We are having so much fun... we'd love to have you join us!


Enjoy your weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
