Play Time....


Happy Father's Day!
If you are lucky enough to still have your Dad with you, I hope that you are enjoying this wonderful day honoring him. Both my father and Rick's have passed away but we are both very lucky to have had wonderful father's that we know loved us so very much. We have beautiful memories of them both.

I am sharing a card today that I made for a couple of challenges, I know, shocked aren't you as I so seldom just create something for fun and to join a challenge that I am not a part of.

I found two that I enjoy playing in every once in awhile and they worked perfectly together. This week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the color palette courtesy of Color Throwdown .

 

Both of these end tomorrow, Monday June 18th, but if you have some time, maybe you would like to join in.

I am using a couple of new toys for me along with one of my older retired sets from Stampin' Up "Garden Collage".
I recently purchased this Sizzix Paisley Palooza embossing folder and I can see that I will love using it more in the future. I have had this cork from Stampin' Up for a while but just recently pulled it out and gave it a try.
I used the same papers for the inside, simply using a Martha Stewart border punch to give it some extra love. 


Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Paper: SU crumb cake, so saffron, bashful blue and very vanilla
