Father's Day 2013

Wow! I can't believe we are heading into the 3rd week of June already! Tomorrow is Father's Day so all the "kids" will be home to celebrate Sunday evening. Just finished my FD card for my hubby. There are several challenges this week asking for a theme of "Father's Day or Masculine" so I'll be entering this one in a few.

This is a fairly simple card, but it still took me a few hours to make! The background is heat-embossed white on a light kraft. The sentiment is printed on vellum which has distressed edges...2 inks: rust and brown.

My list of supplies used:
Patterned cs - Webster's Pages & DCWV
 Solid cs - my stash (probably Hobby Lobby!)
Background stamp - JustRite "Elegant Fronds"
Embossing powder - Mix'd Media Inx, white &
PSE, gold (the little heart)
Embossing ink - Tim Holtz/Ranger "clear"
Inks - Vivid, brown & Studio G, rust
Spellbinders dies - "Card Creator, Matting Basics B" &
"Standard Circles Large"
Gems - K&Company "Christmas Cheer"
Bow - embroidery floss, from stash
Vellum - from scrap box

Challenges: - #23 For or From a Father

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope all of you and the men in your lives have a wonderful Father's Day tomorrow! Blessings to you all!
