Birthday card for Lloyd (FIL) using Mojo Monday 100 Teresa sketch

This Saturday is my Father-in-law's birthday, so I made this card for him using the Mojo Monday turns 100 sketch by Teresa.

I knew I wanted to try the faux leather (wallets) I've seen, but I don't have any UTEE, so I gave it a shot with 2 coats of Clear Embossing Powder. It worked okay; the second photo kinda pics up the light to show it better, although you might have to click on it to get a better view.

I used my Nestabilites for the oval by cutting it out and using the scrap piece as a mask.

Happy Birthday, Lloyd! (...and many more...)

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted): Intrinsic Backgrounds and Happy Birthday stamp sets; Angler stamp set (SU); Crystal Blue, Star Spangled Blue, Bamboo and White Daisy cardstock; Chocolate Chip cardstock (SU); Chocolate, Crystal Blue, Star Spangled Blue and Moonstruck inks; Chocolate Chip ink (SU); Antiqued Copper brads; Natural Hemp; Clear Detail embossing powder; Cornice edge punch (Martha Stewart); Nestabilities Classic Oval Large die (Spellbinders); make-up sponges (other).

Wow, there is a lot of depth to this card. I feel like I am looking out at a pond from a deck up in the mountains.
