A Card Sketch & A Birthday

Good Thursday everybody! This week sure has flown by and since it's Thursday it's time to show you my card for Tamara's card sketch this week.

This week's card was one I made for my dad for his birthday which was friday. The family got together on Sunday to celebrate with him and we had a great time playing on the river and just being together, oh yeah and our trip to Belt's Ice Cream, Dad's birthday wouldn't be complete without Belt's :) I actually got to spend Friday evening & Saturday evening last weekend with my dad too. Friday us kids went for fish fry with mom & dad. Then Saturday was the annual car cruise and I got to ride along with dad in his '98 Vette & then out for supper at Culvers. The car cruise is always a good time and they had a phenomenal turn out this year.

On to the card. My card is a bit of a twist from the original sketch & I knew immediately what I was going to do when I saw the sketch. I found an old pic of dad and one of his cars and used that for the front of the card. I had some fun doing this one trying to come up with a photo. The card ended up being a 5x7 card since I used a 4x6 photo.

And here is the sketch
