{father's day card}

Cindy at Citrus Tree Studio posted a challenge on Saturday to create a red, white and blue Father's Day card. (I won the challenge! A 6x6 BG Lauderdale pp pack! Yay!) I knew I wanted to make a Father's Day card for the create blog challenge as well, so this is what I came up with.

Every little bit of this card is from my stash. I started with kraft cs and added some blue and white pp by 7 Gypsies. The red cs was heat embossed with a star stamp image. For the "father" banner, I used Heidi Swapp chipboard letters and a Fiskars "you're the best" stamp w/a Queen and Co. bling gem. It's all attached to a Martha Stewart pop stick. The banner flag is tied with blue DMC; buttons are from the misc. buttons jar. :)

Thanks for lookin' and have a great day!
hugs, patti

What a fun card, Patti! This reminds me of the little hometown parade that marches by my house, complete with fire trucks, cub scouts and people throwing candy. So heart-warming!
