Birthday Card for a challenge!

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend!  I wanted to share a card I made for my hubby's grandfather for his 90th Birthday, as well as for a challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays!

I used paper from a stack of 6 X 6 " paper that I won from Tiffany at Inkblots by TRD, thank you!!!  The sentiment was typed using the Calligraphy Cartridge, and the top design cut was from the Storybook cartridge cut in half and embossed using my Sizzix Texture Boutique.  I then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distressing ink, added some faux stitching in brown, a brown button tied with tree twine, and topped off with some Jolee's bling applied with my I-Rock tool!  I love how simple it is, and how well it turned out!  The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays was to include some embossing, so please go check out what others have created for this challenge!  Thanks so much for looking and for any comments!
Happy Crafting!
