FF0018 and IMC371 30th Birthday

Happy Monday, peeps!  Today is our friends' son's 30th birthday, so we'll be going out with them to celebrate, and a card was definitely in order!  I used the Festive Friday challenge of "stripes" as well as the In(k)Spire Me sketch:


#festivefridaychallenge, #FF0018, Stampin Up, Sweetest Day, Stripes        

Since this is a card that is going to be hand-delivered, I made it 5" square, using Gray Granite as my base:

I used the retired set called Rev Up the Fun to stamp the car in Poppy Parade; I found this striped paper in my stash, and I also stamped the tire treads on a circle of Confetti White cardstock to make another striped element:


I cut the numbers with the Large Number die, and although you can't tell, the little "exhaust" is silver foil!  I stamped the sentiment from the same set on the inside, and it's ready to go!


So a few more photos from our little jaunt to National Harbor in DC!  This is the entryway to our Wyndham hotel; these lights are shaped like lamps, and they are heaters as well:


We had breakfast at the Westin Hotel; from the window you can see the Capital Wheel that sits in the marina, and of course....more gray, gloomy skies!  But the breakfast was excellent!



The Gaylord Hotel was immense;  there are actual houses built in the atrium that enclose shops!



And fall was definitely in the air; it was CHILLY!!


Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Looks like you had a nice trip away, LeAnne! And WOW on the hotel! Your card today is another WOW! Love the little race card and the design of this card. I have this set and sadly it has never seen ink. Ryan is a huge NASCAR fan so maybe I will have to ink it up for his birthday in a few weeks. Thanks for your inspiration and sharing with us a little of your trip away! :)

That hotel looked marvelous and you and John look like you are 30! The only thing that could make your card better would be if the car were a Corvette :-) Have fun celebrating.

What a fun trip! I was at the Gaylord many years ago for a convention and I remember how amazing that atrium area is! ... great memories! Thanks for joining us at Festive Friday - I just loved the simplicity of your beautiful birthday card. Go team STRIPES!
