Celebrating the Sixth Birthday of Jo's Scrap Shack

When Jo shared the exciting news about celebrating her sixth year of blogging at Jo's Scrap Shack, I began mentally paging through paper stacks, dies, and stamps to plan a special card. In my mind it was girly, floral, and layered with delicate cuts.  In reality, the card I needed was to celebrate the May birthday of one of my favorite guys ever--my dad.  I find masculine cards more challenging to make, but I am happy with the way this one turned out.   The circular image was cut right out of the middle of a sheet from a Tim Holtz doing that, but I end up with some strangely shaped scraps!

Thanks, Jo, for the privilege of being on the design team.  I started designing for Jo's Scrap Shack on  November 11, 2016,  and I was thrilled to be able to create a Veterans Day card for my first post.   I am constantly inspired by the team's creations and blessed by visiting the participants' blogs to see their entries each week.

Happy, Happy Birthday!

Oh such a gorgeous vintage card, Christine! Love the retro mood and the different colors of scraps add more interest to the card, which turned out lovely masculine one!

Christine this is such an amazing masculine card! I really love these papers and how you designed the card! Your father will love this... that image is perfect too because it's almost as if the girl and guy are you and your dad. :)
