Something different for me

Happy Monday all! Hope your weekend is all you wanted it to be. This card is something totally different for me...no flowers or bows or du-dads. It for my fathers BD. I decided to save the tie card for him form for fathers day.
I could not, for the life of me, get a good picture! Actually....if you double click on it you can see how pretty & sparkley it is. It really is a beautiful card! He was born & raised on a farm in Iowa. If any of you have ever been...It is such beautiful country! These old wind mills are every where!
All of the products are from B & J's art stamps. The technique is something I learned at our most recent stamp convention. It involves a lot of stamping over stamping & clear embossing. If you can see the little bit of snow...I used Liquid Applique & a little giltter for that.
Well that is it for today! I have many many projects in the works as March & April are like Christmas for me (except I do not get anything) as we have sooooooo many birthdays on both sides of the family! Guess I had better stop procrastinating & get to work!
Have a fabulous day!!!
& thank to all who leave such kind Comments!!
