Classic Happy Birthday Card

I received the Classic Calico paper pack from one of my comment to win entries (thank you Cath and the fabulous Moxie Fab World) and though it's not something I would pick out, I have to say I am LOVING it!

The papers are classic with a modern and retro feel. Dots, chevron, hexagon patterns in cool black, brown, ivory, white and gold colors. Very monotone but also very versatile.

I made a card similar to this for a friend's fathers Fathers Day card. I love the style and design so much I decided to make another card just like it. The stamp is from Unity Stamp and I think it's darling. I used a tissue (so professional) and wipe the entire card with brown ink to give it a vintage feel.

I am linking this up with the following challenges:

Paper: Studio Calico, Recollections Kraft and White Cardstock
Stamps: Unity Itty Bitty, TPC Studios
Ink: Recollections, Color Box
Embellishment: Recollections Black Pearls  
Adhesive: Scotch ATG
