So this is the crazy card I made my Dad for his 70th birthday yesterday. I think it embarrassed him a little, but my Mom loved it. She looked up at him and said, "I still dig you," which earned her an adorable kissy-kiss PDA (and not a single "gross" from any of the grandchildren). So sweet!
The stamps are from Verve's brand-new Chicks Rule set (now available in the store):
The papers are from Crate Paper's Portrait collection. One of the patterns includes twelve calendar pages. I just cut out March to customize the card a little. The bow-tie is actually the bow stamp from Chicks Rule that coordinates with the Easter basket image. I thought it helped turn the she-chick image into a he-chick. I got totally lucky and found a bow-tie ribbon slide in my stash that fit the bow image to a T. Lotsa bling elsewhere helped with the whole black-tie look I was going for.
And here's the inside:
The sentiment is a mixture of stamps from Happy Days and Chicks Rule. The font combo is questionable, but I couldn't resist incorporating the "spring chicken" sentiment!
