Father's day card

It's Father's Day this weekend, time to get the cards done and mailed. 
Wow- I think almost every challenge blog I follow has a Father's Day challenge going on. 
You will see the long list below of where I am linking this little masterpiece. 
This also means lots and lots of inspiration for all of us. So, if you need a little nudge to get the creative juices flowing for that Dad's day project, check them out. 


I know you've probably seen this image used a bunch of times recently but I was so inspired by Leanne's and Cindy's cards, that I had to make one too. 
The cut is from Elmo's Party. I don't think I have used this cart since last year this time here
The paper is from a new to me 6x6 paper pad from Echo paper called Charming. It has some really great papers perfect for Masculine cards. 

So here is my list of challenge blogs I am linking up to and love to follow because they always has so many amazing ideas....Hope you will link up too.

Here's how I did it...
Base card is A2 size on black Bazzill card stock
All pattern papers from Echo Paper Charming 6x6 paper pad
Face/layers cut at 2" from Elmo's Party
Shaped mat from My Creative Time XL Label die and stamped with XL Label borders stamp set
Hat, tie and sentiment from My Creative Time Here's Looking at You stamp and die set
Buttons from my stash
Tim Holtz ink on all edges
lots of pop dots
