A Happy Birthday Card

Hi Everyone
This morning has been spent making a card for my Dad as it's his birthday this coming week. I find cards for my Dad the hardest to make but I couldn't go and buy one, could I?
This is quite a simple card but I actually quite like how it turned out.

Using a scrap of gelli printed card I stamped the balloon man from Tim Holtz 'Theories' stamp set using the stamping platform as this needs several goes to get the solid black filled in. I then mounted on black card and made a background mount using just the text part of the same stamp.

I then just coloured the little hearts with a red gel pen and mounted it onto a black card blank.
A Tim Holtz Chit Chat sentiment finishes it off.
It's not his birthday till next week but he wont see this so I thought I could share it early.
Hope that you are having a lovely weekend. I'm off to clean out my hen house now!!!
Thanks for stopping by i really appreciate you dropping in
