Daddy Day

Hello again,

I come again with todays 2nd card.
This is one for my father in laws birthday.
As you all know doing cards for men can be any crafters worst nightmare!!!
I did plenty of searching for inspiration and came across this stunning card by Aimes

And here below is my take on it.
I based my colour palette on a challenge going on at InStyle Stamps.
I know fall isn't such a big affair in the UK but I still love all the autumnal colours and the warm fires and crunchy leaves ... mmmmmmmmmm.......

Card Ingredients

Inks and Things: None this time! Gosh!
Papers: Lots!

Yellow panel: Dots from Pink Petticoat
Gingham in Dad and background: Pink Petticoat
Background Dad Letters: Dots from Pink Petticoat (Sense a theme)
Stars: Dots from Pink Petticoat

Odds and Sods: Twine is from stash as are buttons!
The sentiment strips are from Pink Petticoat, a new addition to my collection, they are awesome!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Instyle Stamps:
Colour Challenge
Papertake Weekly: 3 of a kind (3 stars, 3 buttons)
Cards for Men: Birthday

I hope you guys like it!
Lots of love to you all
