Happy Father's Day!



Greetings!  Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there! 

This card was made using Flourishes Guiding Light set.  I stamped all of the images using Sepia Archival Ink and then sponged all the papers using Old Paper and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.   I added a trio of copper pearls in the upper right corner to balance it out.  The layout is based on Taylored Expressions' TESC112 sketch. 

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

This is wonderful! Love the copper pearls and the "rope" on the sides. Beautiful sponging to make the images seem vintage. :-)
