WT167 Father Knows Best!!!


Today's "Way to use it" Challenge is to create a masculine card. Perfect for Father's Day which is right around the corner....

I've caved again and bought this wonderful Papertrey Ink Set called *Father Knows Best*. I love the tree images and the sentiments that came with this set. If you don't know Papertrey Ink yet - click right here to check them out.

The card I have created was done with these colors - Marigold Morning, Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White CS.

The swirled tree top was inked with Wild Wasabi. The stem and sentiment were inked in Chocolate Chip.The circles were punched out with the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Punch from SU. The scalloped circle was cut with the Nestie. I have raised the sentiment with Stampin Dimensionals.

To finish the card off I have added the DS Wild Wasabi Ribbon and the Copper Brads from SU. Hope you like it???? ~TFL~

Today is my Rebecca's 7 th Birthday and we already had a little family "Birthday Bash" and I have given her the card that I have made - she said she loved it and she was so happy I have used her favorite color *PINK*!!! I just love that little stinker!!!

Great card Silke! I had to have this set too. For me, it was the sentiments that sold me. I am still a daddy's girl.

Happy Birthday to Rebecca too!!
