Dad's Birthday

Well this should be it for tonight. You know how I like a great challenge or three. Lol.  This card uses no stamps which was the challenge on the Less is More blog tonight #338.
I also wanted to play with the My Favorite Things sketch #342 and color #73 challenges.  Also I wanted to enter this in The Simon Says Stamp "You've Got the Edge" challenge.
My card started with a soft grey base. I cut out the collar point and used a Cutter Bee tool to make the dashed lines to look like stitching. The tie is paper pieced with teal and coral cardstock. I then cut the happy from the same teal cardstock and birthday out of white cardstock. Then backed it with black cardstock. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
