I have a very quick and easy card to share with you today.  The card is for my dad whose birthday is on Tuesday.  He is a no frills kinda guy so hopefully this will do the trick.


I stamped the new border stamp 3 times to create a subtle tone on tone bg for my banner.  I then stamped the sentiment which is from the very fun Birthday Bash set and added some stickles for the candle.  Some twine at the top to finish things off.  Super quick and simple today.

I'm sure your dad will enjoy this card. It is plain enough for a man. Love the way the fishtail was stamped. The birthday sentiment was great - with the added bling in the flame. Tell dad Happy Birthday from me too.

Clean and simple. Great job of stamping on that banner. At first I thought it was patterned paper. Well done.
