Happy Father's Day

My Dad is long gone and I miss him often. I always tease Bert that I am not getting him anything for Father's Day since he is not my Father. This year I relented and made him a card. I was blog surfing and came upon Dawn Griffith's blog and she inspired me to make this card, it is a CASE of hers right down to the silver brads. The front is brayered and has a lot of interesting lines and depths of color which do not show up in the photograph. Where is that photographer kid when I need her?

The base of the card is Chocolate Chip, layered in More Mustard and Whisper White. The WW layer is brayered in More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie with a little Bravo Burgundy around the edges for good measure. I used the 1 3/8" Circle Punch to make a mask for the sun. It has a little More Mustard sponged in to add a little texture. Silver Brads up the side, Inspired By Nature in Chocolate Chip and a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and Bert is getting a card.

Happy Father's Day to all of the Dads out there.
