A touch of nostagia!

There was something about this Designer Series Paper that reminded me of days long ago.  So, I thought it was appropriate for a birthday card that I made for a friend who is celebrating his 60th birthday. 

My card base is Very Vanilla cardstock, with a layer of Riding Hood Red and Fan Fair Designer Series Paper.  A piece of Island Indigo Designer Paper was placed on and cut to give the appearance of ribbon, and a Natural Designer Button was added for embellishment, while still keeping the card masculine.  I also sponged some Island Indigo ink to my stamped and punched sentiment, and placed it on with dimensionals.
