Color Blocked Father's Day Card

Happy Friday my friend!  So excited for today and this weekend because I will be attending Stamping Around tonight and all day Saturday!  5 classes of stamping and inky goodness, I can't wait!!  Because of this glorious event (and my eagerness) I have packed all of my essentials to go!  So what to do when I want to play at CAS-ual Fridays?!  Go CAS of course!  Now, I am totally last minute and still need a father's day card...enter the color block challenge and lack of tools and you get this card!


Using Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado and Ocean Tides card stock blocks, I adhered them together and secured them to a Kraft card base.  Ruffled up the ends and secured a matching OT button.


Die cut a frame and stamped my sentiment. along with a leaf and adhered it under a score line and twine.  For visual balance I added two DC buttons.


Well, that is all for me today, I have my Card Patterns post scheduled for tomorrow, as I will be gone, so be sure to stop back to check it out!  Have a great day!

Lindsay
