Fathers Day Card and the IC Challenge!

Hi there!! The Inspiration Challenge has been posted for the week and the website to draw inspiration from is Design Dazzle ! Much to see there so you should check it out!! I chose the "March Room of the Month" as my inspiration. I was looking for masculine colors to inspire a Father's Day card and really liked the blues and browns found in the Room of the Month room. I used "For Father", "Wonderful Favorites", and "Park Avenue Patterns" stamp sets - all by SU - to create this card. The toolbox image from the SU "For Father" set is colored with copics. The scallop shape of the card was made with a Sizzix XL die that I just bought from the Grapevine TX All American Scrapbook Convention that I went to on Thursday. The "To My" and "Father" have brad accents attached to them and the little acrylic tag hosting the word "Father" is a Heidi Swap Ghost embellishment (also purchased from the stamp convention yesterday!). Metal accents are by We R Memory Keepers. Polka dotted paper is DCWV. Thanks so much for checking in!!
