Raisin Boat - Lawn King 2

Hi All,

I made a birthday card today for my dad.  He will be 89 on Saturday and one of the things he still likes {and is able} to do is cut the lawn on his riding lawn mower.  I actually bought this Raisin Boat stamp set "Lawn King" specifically to make his birthday card this year.

Raisin Boat is having another challenge; Birthday cards is the theme.  A great reminder to make a card with this set, for my dad.

I haven't been feeling very inspired lately, so when this happens I look at this weeks sketch challenges.  I found a sketch I liked on the Sketch Saturday blog.  Here is the sketch I used for today's card inspiration. 
I flipped the scallop element up on my card.
