Happy 90th Birthday

 My Grandpa turns 90 this weekend up in Nebraska, and I am so home sick to be there.  I  had a special card for him, but I made this one for him last night for my mom to give him.  

I normally take my pictures in natural light, but since my mom left so early this morning, I had to take the  pics last night.  It gave me a chance to brush up on some photo editing skills that I lack a bit of ;)  My mom wanted something fun to give him, because my grandpa has a pretty amazing sense of humor.  I used this older set I have from Doodle Factory.  I don't even remember what the set is called, but when I saw those monsters years back I had to have them, haha.

I used some older chipboard numbers that I had from back in the day when I was a demonstrator.  I inked them up, covered them in glue and glitter, and then covered them in glossy glaze for this fun look.  The stars are a Taylored Expressions Die called Seeing Stars Die, and the Notepaper & Clipboard Dies are from TE too.  I also used the Folded Banner Die from Simon Says Stamp.

And here is the inside:
