Card for my Dad. (+ 2 giveaways!)

As we were driving to a prairie a few weeks ago I was super tired, so we stopped at Starbucks to get caffeine so I could stay awake + keep J company. I spotted this gift card and almost let out a HUGE yell — I say almost because I didn’t want to scare the poor girl at the counter, ha!  — isn’t it just too neat-o? The blue, the green, the white, the red hills, the bird, the transparent part — I thought it would be a great starting point for a card!  And it was!


Here’s the front of the cart — notice the felt?  You know how I love felt!




Here’s a side view so that you can see the clouds — I stamped them with White StazOn ink on an acetate notecard:
