A Day to Celebrate

My last attempt at making a Father’s Day card wound up with lace, pearls and beads.  While this might have worked for Valentine’s Day, it was a little too much of a stretch for Father’s Day.  So I went surfing through my beloved Scrap Stash and unearthed the bones for this card . . .

While I didn’t label these particular scraps, I believe my friend Carol Chiaramonte is responsible for these glorious shades of Olive, Gold, and Orange which she sponged over watercolor cardstock as well as on the canvas strip layered under the sentiment.  Carol thinks she’s not very good with color.  She’s nuts, isn’t she?

Cardstock:         Bazzill Festive, watercolor paper, Generic Mango scrap
Stamps:              Stamp a Mania Line Background, Hero “A day to celebrate”
Inks:                    Memories Art Print Brown, Unknown golds/greens/oranges
Emb Powder:    Vippies Transcendence
Dies/Punches:   Savvy Tree, 1/8” corner rounder
Doo Dads:          Green satin 3/8” ribbon*, May Arts Jute fiber
* Although the camera argues otherwise, the ribbon loop perfectly matches the darker green in the background and isn't really blue at all.
