Happy Birthday, Papa l'Orange!

today's my Dad's birthday, and i'm so excited that we'll be seeing him TOMORROW! i haven't been up to Canada since May, but now, with passports in hand, and an extra long weekend, there's nothing standing in my way!

i saw this challenge at That's Just So Cute, and thought it had been a while since i'd done a seriously layered card, AND i had an excuse to make a birthday card, so this one's for my Dad! (the challenge is a birthday card with lotsa layers - makes sense, right?)
also playing along with the ANYTHING BUT CHRISTMAS challenge over at Charisma Cards - how WONDERFUL to be making something without snowmen or trees or candy canes or carollers on it! :)

doesn't this card TOTALLY match my blog?

i refused to take out any new PAPERS, and used only scraps for this... the pooch is cut from an already trimmed piece of Aggie paper from Basic Grey's Junebug line, and everything else was just floating around. there's some Rock Candy on the chipboard, but i don't know if it photographed very well, so you'll have to take my word for it. :) there's some BG Lime Rickey paper on there, as well as DCWV from the Baby Boy mat stack (which i probably bought two years ago now).

so excited to see my ol' Pa!

and i'll likely be back with another project or two throughout the day. ciao!
