Happy Birthday Dad...and a fab 5 winner!

wow a mid-week post for me! I needed to make a card for my dads birthday.  For me....that is a huge challenge in itself!!!! I needed some help so I chose this weeks 2 Sketches 4 you  sketch as my inspiration.
                                                                  This is the sketch:

This is my card:

Very simple I know but works it for a guy card :)  I REALLY wanted to put a bow on it though :) The papers are PTI, The stamp set is TT from a card class we took a couple of years ago at CKC....forgot about it but really like it!!! I gave the tiny little birds just a spot of color with prisma color pencils...supposed to resemble a Robin??? The sentiment is PTI. The embossing folder is from SIZIX. The punches are both SU. That's it!!! Hope he likes it!!!  Now better go finish the inside & get it in the mail!! See ya later in the week!!

I don't think your Dad will like it Gwen -- I think he'll L-O-V-E it!!! Great idea & take on the sketch, which I just saw posted too. Love the colors you chose -- perfect for a guy card & the "fence" your sentiment is on is perfection!!!
