The Play Date Cafe #96 - Fathers Day

Well, it was certainly challenging to try and use this weeks Play Date Cafe colours for a man's card, but with Father's Day in Australia next weekend, I had to get a wriggle on!

I have combined stamps by The Crafts Meow (Life is a Carvnival), with papers by Bo Bunny (Flutter Butter 'honey') and Cosmo Cricket minidecks (Wanted and Earth Love) to create the mood/theme and colours.

I added the Tim Holtz Vintage Market alpha die letters, because I thought they really suited the carnival type theme of the card.  I used Scattered Straw DI and a little Pumice Stone DI on the edges to tie the layers together, a bit of sewing and some plain old kitchen twine (just to ensure it wasn't too girly!)

Thanks for stopping by :)
