Over the Hill?

Talk about cutting it down to the wire...I had to have this card in the mail this morning in order for it to get to my dad in time for his 60th b-day...I was literally finishing the envelop a few minutes before the mail person came by...what a rush! Anyway, my dad is turning 60 and if you knew him you would never guess it, as like I said in the card, he's in better shape than I am!

I think I used more cartridges on this card than any other single project:
Doodletype, Cuttin' Up, AE, Beyond B-days and Celebrations!!
I used the CDS and there was one cut that I made that I had to change the cart 4 times!
But I think this was the 1st project (I think) that I've done that I didn't use any stamps, inks or chalks, but couldn't stay away from MM blossoms, ribbon & rhinestones. :)

And dad's favorite color is red, do you think I used enough?...
