Dad's Always a Star!

My dad has been gone for many years. He died when I was just 21 - two years after my mother passed away. I like to think he just didn't want to go on without her. Anyway, I get to make Father's Day cards for my kids to give to their dad and for my Father-in-Law. At any holiday, all the challenges come out! So here's my latest father's day card - I would have given it to my father had he still been alive, because he was always a star to me!





Having gotten the sentimental stuff out, here's the challenges!
  • The sketch is from the Sweet Stop.
  • Corrosive asked for a Father's Day Card.
  • Flourishes Timeless Tuesday asked for Patterned Paper.
  • Secret Crafter asked for bling - there's a rhinestone on each star point as well as around the lower sentiment. Of course, I also have my Doodlebug Sugar Coated brads - which are kind of blingy too!
  • Belli asked for Father's Day using this Sweet Stop Sketch!
  • This one is kind of funny - CuttleBug Challenge asked for a card inspired by your favorite movie. One of my favorites happens to be Father of the Bride with Steve Martin & Kim Williams. I was originally going to do something bridal, but....
  • PaperPlay asked for any twist. I am thinking a bow and rhinestones on a Father's Day card is pretty much a twist!
And that's it for this one!! I like it!
