LUCKY Poker Who's Counting Bday Card

Made this masculine birthday card for a special friend that likes to go to the Casinos and usually wins at the poker table.

Used Kraft cardstock for base which I embossed with a Woodgrain embossing folder to give it a wood table look. Used Tim Holtz Poker Face embossing folders. To give it more masculine look I distressed the Poker cards using TH sander & TH Distress Ink. Recycled a piece of gold foil cardstock cut out from a previous project. Stamped 'LUCKY' using MISTI for lining it up straight. Added a heart brad to attach to gold foil cardstock. Stamped birthday sentiment 'Who's Counting?' using MISTI (yes I have been using this wonderful tool & like it a lot). Added a gold brad.
