Birthday Card for my Dad...

The base of this card was initially going to be a Christmas card that's why you can see a bit of the red distressing in the lowers right corner...i decided to use it for a birthday card instead and added some blue {dads fav colour} patterned paper to the front and ripped it at a diagonal after adhering it to the base i distressed the rest of the white area with T!m Holtz antique linen distress ink to highlight the tear...i then also added a die cut frame which i had embossed with some clear and gold embossing powder as the frame was quite flimsy and embossing it gave it a little more strength, i also did the same to the celebrate label and placed it on some dimensionals to pop it out of the frame a Little ...i then wrapped some paper ribbon i had in blue around the top of the card several times and tied it in a bow... lastly i used some bling letter to spell out the word "papa" which means dad in Italian in the bottom right corner

 Inside of card- some die cuts in the right bottom corner and stamped happy birthday
