Happy Birthday Father-in-Law Barry

Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time. ~Jean Paul Richter

Good morning!
I am almost done using up some DP I made a while back using glossy card stock and re-inkers. I just love how it turned out and can barely stand to throw it away so I just keep trying to figure out how to use it up.

Today is the birthday of my husbands father Barry! I hope he likes it!

This is the first time I have used this new tree stamp I recently purchased and I am in love! I know this is going to quickly become one of my most favorite tree stamps!

And it looks awesome on my paper - looks like a wild day close to the sea ... which is awesome since my Father-in-law and his wife live close the ocean.

Size 5.5 x 5.5

Based on a sketch from No Reimer Reason
Glossy Cardstock - Stash
Cardstock & Sentiment (Happiest of Birthday Wishes) - Stampin up!
Woodgrain Embossing folder - Sizzix
Tree Image - Stampendous

Thanks for stopping by! Your comments brighten my day!
(Hugs) Cara
