Old Guy's Birthday

Hello my blog friends. Hope your week is going well.

Today's card is for my hubby's 70th birthday. I very affectionately call him the "old guy". I found this Mustang convertible stamp at Viva Las Vegas Stamps a few years ago (the old guy actually does drive a white Mustang convertible) The background was made using a cotton ball, Bashful Blue ink and a torn piece of paper for a guide. The "setting sun" was done with a template I made by punching a 1 1/8 circle and used daubers with yellow and pink ink, then stamped the trees, from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set. I hand cut a piece of black card stock for the road and made the white lines with a white Signo writer. The "70" was done on the computer and hand cut, the sign post was cut free hand. The road sign came about because I wanted to have the number 70 somewhere on the card front. The sentiment "Cruisin' over the hill" was printed on the computer, then I used Nestabilitles Circles Large dies to cut the arch. Below is a photo of the inside. The old man is an image I found online then colored with Bic Mark It markers.

I'm entering this in Sentimental Sunday's #90 challenge

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.

 I spent a lot of time getting this together and I'm not too sure about it. Your comments are very much appreciated.
