Father's Day Card

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!  Just wanted to do another quick post and this time it's a Father's Day card.  I made this for my fiance's dad, who is a sweetheart of a man :0)  I really hope he likes it as much as me and my fiance do.  I really loved the way it turned out for so simple and quick it was to make.  Sometimes I can spend an hour or more on a card and still not be happy with it and I have to go back to the drawing board..go! This card took me 20 minutes and probably half of that time was trying to figure out what papers I wanted to use. I picked out my pattern paper first and then went with those colors for the rest of my card.  I  am pretty much addicted to my Gypsy and so I use it for all my projects including this one.  Here are the specifics:

Carts used:
  •  Elegant Edges (card base @ 5.50" welded 2 shadow shapes; olive green mat @ 5.25" hid the butterfly on it..gypsy to the rescue! and pattern paper mat @ 5.0" again hid the butterfly)
  • Celebrate with Flourish : #1 Dad and all layers @ 3.50"
Other Supplies:
  • Solid cardstock: Bazzill Papers (Dk. Blue-"Handsome") & (Green-"Mint Chip") and Recollections (Craft & Lt. Blue)
  • Patterned Paper: My Stash
  • Hemp Cord
  • Button: My Stash
  • White Gel Pen
  • Pop Dots
That's it, super easy and quick to put together :0)

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
