For my hubby on Fathers Day


more fathersday hubby 001

There were a few challenges going on this week that I used to make this card for my hubby for Father’s day.

I used the card sketch from Paper Craft Star and the tie it up theme from My Craft Spot.  Both of these sites give such inspiration and do a little enabling too!!!

I used my heritage cart to cut the auto out and ran thru my embosser.  And I bought some spellbinder dies so I could use my computer to print out my sentiments when I didn’t have quite the right stamps for my sentiments.  The metal gears are from my stash of embellishments I have been stocking up on and I used eyelets to run some cotton twine thru at the top of the card.  I have to say that every time I use a challenge to make a card I learn something new and enrich my knowledge in Card making!!! 

I hope you all stop by these challenge sites and take a look and have fun playing with paper!!!  Let me know what you think!!!
