I am back after a few weeks

Hello friends, wish you all a very happy new year.
I am back from holidays after 2 weeks, and hopefully i will be posting regularly and will try visiting everyone often.
I am finding it bit hard to sit through at the moment, specially since my dad was here. He went back home with us, and we had lots of fun together here, while he was visiting me.

The card I am sharing is the one I made for my dad, and had to hide it from him. His turned 70 on 1st of January.
I shared it on FB and Instagram on the 1st, but I am blogging it today.

I used the stencil from winne&walter, all the goodies which I got from them are still sitting and crying out loud to be used, will surely play with them now!
I used distress inks in shades of blue to sponge the stencil. The 70 was cut on my scanNcut, and then, I masked it leaving a thin line and inked it up using black soot distress ink.
The sentiment is from Happy Little Stamper.
Added the die cut panel using foam adhesive.
A few black jewels to finish off.

We all wrote and gave it my dad on the 1st, he loved the card very much.
