Fire Truck Birthday

More work birthdays mean I get even more use out of my You're My Hero set! This time for a firefighter!

I also used Border Banter, Sent with Love (both retired), Hearts a Flutter and a chevron from the new thinlits card dies (worth a look! I'll post some photos later on of cards I made with them) to add some layers. I cut the truck out with the exclusive new deco label framelits as well. A little embossing with white ep on white craft ink added some more texture.

Last but not least, though you can't see it here, I used the letters in the ABC-123 Sketch set to put his name on the envelope. That's one of my favorite things to do, and with two coordinating sets, it's easy to do just sketch filler, just outline, or combine them in any color for the perfect match to my card!

While I'm tooting my own horn, you'll notice I didn't credit a CASE on this one. That's because this is another card that I built from scratch with nothing to go off! I just knew I wanted these colors, chevrons and the fire truck and went from there!
