Dad's Day #3

Well Father's Day is upon us so I want to share the card I made for my DH. I hope it's not too "girly" but it is a card from our daughter to him, so I designed it as a card a little girl would give her Daddy. She's only 2 so I will probably let her scribble on another stamped image and make a second card but I wanted to make one also. I must admit I really love the way it turned out. I love the Magnolia images, except I'm not wild about the wings on some of the Tildas so I colored them brown and hopefully it blends in with her hair.
I started with a base of PTI Ripe Avocado and added some Plum Pudding bitty dot paper. I love these two colors together. Next, I stamped some stripes from Let Freedom Ring onto Vintage Cream cardstock for a subtle background. The box image was stamped on Kraft cardstock and colored with copic markers. Finally, Tilda was stamped onto a piece of white cardstock, colored with Copic markers and then cut out and layered onto the box. Some of the lilacs were also cut out and layered on for more dimension. For finishing touches I added some vintage looking trim, some lovely PTI buttons and ribbon and a cute sentiment from SU! Family Phrases set. The little gift I got my DH is backordered :( but today when I went to pick up my new iphone (jumping up and down happy) I bought DH an ipod Nano that he's been wanting. Shhhhh.... I know he'll be psyched on Father's Day.

I hope you all have a great weekend. I hope to get to play with my new Vintage Picnic set this weekend if I'm not too tired from working in the garden.
