Count Your Blessings

This is my father-in-law's birthday card.  He's a sweet guy, and a lot of fun to be around.  I've made lots of bluegrass, music, and guitar cards for him, so I decided to change it up this year and make more of a serious card for him.  Here's how it was made:

Size:  3 3/4" x 9"  (fits into a no. 10 envelope)
Cardstock:  Bazzill, Recollections, DCWV
Patterned Papers:  DCWV Cotton Bloom Stack and unknown
Count Your Blessings:  Country Life Cricut cartridge cut at 2 1/2"
Silhouette boy:  A Child's Year Cricut cartrige cut at 3 1/4"
Label behind boy:  Lacy Labels Cricut Lite cartridge cut at 3 1/2"
Pearls:  Unknown
Flourish (sort of):  Spellbinders

(I think all of these sizes are correct.  I made this over the weekend, and I tried to make a mental note of the sizes.)

The inside says, "Not your birthdays, or your candles.  Have a wonderful, blessed day."

Thanks for looking, and for the kind words some of you leave!  They make my day!
