A Card For Dad

It's new release week at Flourishes so I thought I would try and play along with some of their challenges. Yesterday's Timeless Tuesday challenge #173 was to create something for a Dad. I don't have any Flourishes sets with masculine images so I had to make do with a sentiment from the 'With Gratitude' set. I also didn't have the right size chipboard letters, so I made my own by layering letters cut out on the cricut. I wanted to do 5 - 6 layers, but ended up with only 4 because I only had a very small piece the paper left that I wanted to use, but I think they worked. I do like how this card turned out.

I used the Mojo Monday sketch #245 and also entered City Crafter Challenge #113 - Buttons, Buttons...

Supplies: Card size is 4 3/4" x 6 1/2" - All Supplies CTMH except where noted

Paper - Cruisin' DP, Grey Wool, White Daisy, Juniper, Black CS, Red CS (Bazzill)
Stamps - With Gratitude (Flourishes)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Grey Wool
Accessories - Buttons, Black Hemp, Black ribbon
