Happy Father's Day

Wishing all the dads, step-dads, grandpas and great-grandpas a wonderful Father's Day!!! I am blessed not only to have a wonderful father, but a great father-in-law and a step father-in-law.

I was able to get together with a couple of wonderful friends the other day and do some scrapping.  We don't get to see each other as much now that it's summer and we are all so busy.  And one of my friends happens to be on the Paper and Such design team.  She had a few stamps along, and I really like the Deer Dad set. I made this card for my step father-in-law I guess you would say.  He loves to fish and hunt and this deer just reminded my of him.

I wanted to stay with earthy tones, so I started w/kraft paper for the base of the card, and worked w/greens & browns.  The background of the stamped image kind of happened by accident.  When running the die thru the Cuttlebug, it didn't cut just right and actually left this 'layered' impression I guess you could say.  It turned out kinda of nice for a mistake! And I like the 'wood' background of the DP I used from DCWV's The Green Stack 70% recycled paper stack. And of course, men are not really into bows and bling, so I went w/a zig zag ribbon and twine from Jillibean Soup and added a button and some pearl like bling to the bottom.

I hope he likes it !!

Don't forget to come back on the 20th of the month to catch the new releases from Faith @ D2D!!  See you back then!
