Happy Birthday to our son-in-law!

Our son-in-law is such a special guy - a wonderful husband and Daddy too! He loves to ride his motorcycle and he and his dad joined my husband on a Guys Bike Trip last Spring to North Carolina. They had a great time (as did Alison, the boys, and I, who stayed behind) and I made this card especially for his birthday - so he could remember their special time together! I used strips of a map as a background. I wove them together to create an interesting mat, mounted the motorcycle with brads, placed it on a embossed background (yes, it's the Square Lattice embossing plate), and sponged some Soft Suede to age the look a bit. Since we're heading to Ft. Myers for the weekend, we'll celebrate his birthday while we're there! Hope he likes his card! I'll probably be posting some photos of the boys too - keep checking  back!

  1. Great card I love your idea of weaving the map to put your fab motorbike image onto. :-) xx
