Happy Father's Day DAD



It's all about DAD this week with Father's Day just around the corner. I used the June SFYTT by Jen del Muro which is a fun sketch to work with. I'm also playing along with two *new to me* challenges, Paper Pal Arts & One Stop Craft Challenge, and the Make It Monday #93 challenge. The color scheme for my card came from PPA's challenge which required us to use a red, blue and white theme. The One Stop Craft Challenge is perfect for those making Father's Day cards because the challenge this week is {surprise} Father's Day. Here's Jen's Sketch For You To Try for June 2012 and you can enter anytime during the current month if you'd like to play along.

PPA136 June 7

I embossed the blue panel with a Stars Impression Plate by Taylored Expressions and die cut a Die-namics Solid Bracket Border by My Favorite Things in red to add a pop of color. The Standard Circle Lg. dies by Spellbinders provide a backdrop for my main image and Father's Day sentiment while a Verve Charming Oval Die completes my sketch requirements. The sentiments are also from Verve and I used Dad's Day & World's Best while the main stamped image is from Wild West by T!m Holtz for Stampers Anonymous. Staz On's Azure Blue ink was used exclusively and red satin ribbon, white brads, red pearls and a blue star complete this card and my Father's Day cards for 2012.

Thanks for taking a look today and can you believe this is my second post today. It was actually suppose to be my first post but so much for scheduled posting. Hmmm...
Have a great day and hats off {pun intended} to all those wonderful father's out there.
God Bless You!

Extra's: blue star (Bo Bunny-Block Party Buttons); white brads (PS); red pearls (Kaisercraft); red satin ribbon (Hobby Lobby)

It only just NOW dawned on me as I'm looking at your fabulous Father's Day card...OH CRUD...I need to make Father's Day cards!! Hahaha...I've rather enjoyed just living vicariously through others. Perhaps I could just send them a link to your card instead.... ;)
L1, it's another wonderful masculine card and the framing of the image is superb. I love the whole western theme to it.
Thank you so much for sharing it with us at Make It Monday as well.
Hugs,
