RS #168 ~ Daddy!

Hey there! I have a card to share today that Sweet P will be giving her daddy for Father's Day!! I used this week's Retro Sketches challenge as my inspiration.


That little bit of rebel came out in me while designing this! I went with a rounded banner rather than a pointed one like the sketch. Actually, I already had that die cut laying on my desk and wanted to use it up. I think it works. I used a PPP Stitched Borders 2 Die on the angled piece and the Picket Fence Die for the horizontal piece from the sketch. Isn't this tiny fox the sweetest thing! I just bought him at the stamp convention in April from the Prickley Pear booth. My letters are from a set I picked up at Jo-Ann eons ago. All of the DP is by Crate Paper

I forgot to photograph the inside. Sweet P put her signature in there for her daddy! I rubbed some chalk on the end of her teeny little finger and let her put it on the card!! 




Have a great day friends and thanks so much for stopping by! ~Lisa
