cutting it fine

Well the Play Date Cafe colour challenge for this week is nearly over, and I've only just finished my card.  I've been trying to work on this for at least the last 4 days, but it just hasn't happened until just now.

Here is the beautiful inspiration picture....

And here is my entry.  A Father's Day card (father's day in Australia is at the beginning of September), with a painty background, some stencilling and stamping with stamps and found objects.

The banner stamp, greeting and stars are Verve, and I stamped the background of the banner with a Unity stamp.  I love the contrast of the mixed media background with the structure of the banner.

Over at Simon Says Stamp and Show blog they are having a "no rules" challenge this week.  I am also entering my card in to their challenge.

Thanks for visiting today!
