3 out of 3!

I found this awesome stamp the other day and had to get it. My husband, my dad, and my father-in-law are all not only great dads, but they are the kind of dads that really can fix anything. I'd say 3 out of 3 is pretty good when it comes to something like this. So this is what I'll be using for Father's Day "cards" to go with whatever tool they get this year ;) The size is smaller than a regular card (3 1/2 x 5), simply because it looked better to me this way. I also tried using Sara's Creative Adventures Color Challenge for this card. I say tried because I always seem to be missing some element. I don't have New Leaf. I have Ripe Avocado, and have loved it so much that when New Leaf came out, I really didn't even care to get it. So I replaced the new leaf with Ripe Avocado. And on the patterned paper I used, I noticed that Ocean Tides is also on there. So I left out and added a color. But still, her color challenge was what inspired me to use these colors!

Stamp: Inkadinkado
Ink: PTI Ripe Avocado
Cardstock: PTI Ripe Avocado, PTI Smokey Shadow
DP: PTI Polka Dot Parade
Accessories: SU Spiral Punch
