Happy Father's Day

I have never entered a card in more than one challenge, and this week I am actually entering two for the first time. The JustRite challenge this week was to use their stamps and make a manly card. Most of my JustRite stamps are flowers, though they have a gorgeous By the Sea set that would be perfect, which I don't have yet. So I used my New Times Roman Font set to spell out Happy Fathers Day.

I am also entering this card in the latest Creative Inspirations Challenge which was to use sewing or faux stitching. I used faux stitching for the first time! I usually machine stitch.

I used a die cut for the tags, wish I had a punch it would have been faster ;) I added some twine to the tags and some faux stitching around the card and my stars. The tags and stars are all on pop dots, and everything is sponged around the edges.

Thanks so much for stopping in, have a wonderful day. :)
