CQC141, FTTC173 Happy Father's Day....

Happy Tuesday again!

We have a *FATHER's DAY* theme here at the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC173. Heather is our hostess this month and I know she would love it if you could play along too. 

Here is my take on it......



I decided to use the image from the Kids Play Set and the sentiment is from a retired A Man's View Set. I started out by sponging the Memento Summer Sky Ink and Memento Nautical Blue Ink in the background and then stamped the silhouette image with Memento Paris Dusk.

Now it's time to check out all the other projects: CindyMakiHeatherMonaBeateAmanda and please make sure to stop by our new June Guest Designer Alice Wertz. For all the important details please stop by the Flourishes Blog

The colors this week are from the Color Q #141....

                                  

Have fun playing and I'll see you again next week!!! 

                                                                    Hugs ~S~

I just love this card! The sponging in the 2 blue inks is perfect & I love that image! The bg with the green strip & stitched ribbon sets it off along with the scored lines. Terrific card!
