Freshly Made Father's Day

How's your week going?   I'm glad it's Friday but man, this week went by quickly and I'm fast approaching party day!  I still can't believe that my oldest is turning is that possible?  There is still much to do in terms of party preparation so I may not get a card out until Sunday!!!

Today I snuck in a few minutes (okay more than a few minutes!) to tackle this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

I am going to be in need of a few Fathers's Day cards so I figured I better get a start on them!

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
DSP: Nautical Expedition
Stamps: The Open Sea, Sentiment - non-SU
Ink: Early Espresso
Other: Early Espresso Bakers Twine, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder,  Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Dimensionals


  1. Nice card! I love a good manly card:) great use of the sketch!

  2. Love this! Love the colors and that DSP is great in this sketch. Glad to see you this week at FMS!

  3. Lovely Father's Day card! I love how you have placed the sentiment so it mimics the sails in the ship - very nice! Great card :)

  4. This is a great card. Impressive fussy cutting around the ship! Cheers Karren

  5. I love a great Man Card, and this is a GREAT Man Card! Really nice use of the papers, images, colors and textures. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  6. Wow ... stunning, I love this card! Every element here works so perfectly!
    Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!!!

  7. This is a fantastic man's card. Great colour scheme and love how the ship appears to be trailing the sentiment :)
