A Father's day Card....NOT A BOX!!!!


Mother and Father In-Law are visiting today so I had to make a rushed card ready for Father's Day as they are going away on holiday. It's a bit of a mish mash card, thrown together as once again I have no forward thinking or organisations skills. (Especially when your head has been full of cold for 19 days!)

I used some old Basic Grey Paper, Stampin' Up Vine Street embossing folder-which I also used as a stamp for the background of the main image. I over stamped in black the lovely phone box from the SU Feeling Sentimental set. I then made up a "manly flower" by layering a small round sentiment stamp.

Lots of destressing, inking and a bit of  metallic rub ons to enhance the textures.

I took inspirations from a few challenges today;

Cards for Men -Dad
Sketch N Stash - No 114. 
Daring Cardmakers - Make it Yourself 
A Card a Day - week 27th may

It's been a loooong time since I used a sketch challenge and I really found it helped me speed up my dithering this morning! Thank you for all the inspiration......tomorrow I will be back to boxes!

"Male" cards are always a little tough to me. Yours does look great and the "male flower" surely is an idea to remember!
