Fathers Day Card


Today I finally found a bit of time to do some crafting and thought I'd best get my hubby's Fathers Day card done for the kids. I used the sketch from this weeks One Stop Craft Challenge.
The Image is WOF, then masked it and used the Tree Stump from Magnolia. Coloured with Polycolour Pencils and Sansador.
Papers are MME, Laundry Line. Used the alphabet MS Punch. Edged with Green Chalk Ink Pad and used a corner punch and jewels. The tag is Tim Holtz.

This card also fits in with the following challenges;

Tellens Place - Fathers Day
Lexi's Creations - Some Old (Both stamps go way back)
Incy Wincy Designs - One for the Guys
Cupcake Craft Challenge - One for the Boys
Simple Doodles - Just 4 You Dad
Stamptacular - A Tribute to all Fathers
Magical Crafts - Something for a Male/Fathers Day
Creative Craft Challenge - For the man in your Life
Cards for Men - Fathers Day
OCC - Gotcha Cornered
Alphabet Challenge - G for Green
Paper Cutz - Fathers Day
A Crafty Little Place - One for the Boys
CRAFT Challenge - Fathers Day/Mens Cards
Crafts and Me - Friends & Family
I chose not to over embellish the card, think the words say it all.

Thanks for looking!
