Wow...August's almost gone!

Can't believe August is almost over ... it's been really busy 'round here. My Dad celebrated his 80th birthday today and we had a little get-together BBQ. Here's the card I made to commemorate his special day. I love my Dad...we all call him Papa since grandkids were suits him.
Getting back to the card, I was inspired by this card I saw on Sharon Johnson's blog quite some time ago. I changed a few things for my version. I inked up my 3 1/4" Just Rite Stamper with SU's Dusty Durango ink for the sentiment. It's so fun to make personalized greetings with this handy set. The font is the Brayton Font. Spellbinder's Classic Circle Nestibilities were used to cut the circles of SU Very Vanilla and Dusty Durango. The designer paper is from the Wanted collection by Cosmo Cricket. I picked it up about a year ago and new it would be something I'd use for Papa...he's kind of an old Cowboy! I'm really happy with how it coordinates with the Dusty Durango and Soft Suede cardstock I used. Staying with the western theme, the small star stamps inked up in Dusty Durango are from SU's Wanted set, punched out with the small star punch from SU. Copper brads, some linen thread wrapped around the vertical layer and a rub with some Ranger Antique Linen Distressing Ink finish off the card, giving it a somewhat rugged look. Whatcha think? I'd love to hear your comments.
