Heart 2 Heart #8...Father's Day

I really needed to get started on Father's Day cards and the Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week, "stamp your own background" was just the boost I needed!  I flipped through the Close To My Heart catalog for ideas and kept coming back to the new Splendor paper....problem being, I haven't bought any yet!  But, it was fun to make my own using the same colors: Autumn Terracotta, Heavenly Blue, Moonstruck, and Topiary.

Cards for men always stump me and if I don't use some goofy animal stamp, I always fall back on stars!  I googled Father's Day Cards for some ideas and came across this card created by Darcy Ucily (I think that's her name).  Anyway, I liked the simplicity of it and tried to do something similar.  I really love this color combo and managed to dig up some Topiary cardstock I didn't realize I had, so that was exciting! ;O)

Hope you all have a safe Memorial Day.  Please make sure to take some time to remember the men and women who have paid the ultimate price and those still sacrificing for us today.  I'll be taking flowers out to the cemetery on base to remember my grandfathers, one of which gave his life for our freedom....

Cardstock:  Heavenly Blue, Autumn Terracotta, Topiary, and White Daisy
Ink: Autumn Terracotta, Heavenly Blue, Moonstruck, and Topiary
Stamp Sets:  Say It In Style, True Friends, Wish Upon a Star, Star Power, Shining Star, and Placement Guide (to place the brads)
Other:  Martha Stewart border punch and CTMH Autumn Terracotta Bigger Brads
