For Dad!

Here is a card I made ahead of time for my Dad for Father's Day this year. This is a perfect follow up to my last post which highlighted the When I Grow Up set from There She Goes. This card features the boy image of this set, wearing his Dad's shirt and tie.

I made this card for two challenges - the color challenge at Splitcoast (SC375) to use Night of Navy, Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie. The second challenge was the Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC158) shown below.

I colored the image with copics, paper pieced a tie for him and then cut the image out and popped it up on a circle of designer paper. I chose a paper that reminded me of a shirt. The rest of the card was designed to match the sketch in shades of navy and orange to meet the color challenge. The pumpkin pie panel is embossed with Swiss Dots. Obviously a flower wasn't going to work with my masculine card, so I made a ribbon for my Dad using There She Goes Worlds Best die. I used a sentiment from this stamp set as well.

Thanks for stopping by today!
