My Favorite Dad

Hi Friends!  It's the first Monday of a new month and that means it's CONTEST time over at Mojo Monday!   Come play along with this week's sketch for a chance to win a free set from Verve!  You can enter as many times as you like, so just let the mojo flow!

For my card I adjusted the sketch to a horizontal layout to accommodate the stamps I wanted to use.  I thought the trio of flags from Wonderful Marvelous would look great as little trees on a lake, so flipped it on it's side and colored with Copic markers.  Next time, I'll probably add some brown around the outer part for sand/ground, but for today we have floating pines!  {grin}  Then I built my sentiment on the circle and banner panels, added some black mats and a baja breeze background and finished off with some black dots.  Easy peasy and one more Father's Day card done!  Hooray!

I hope you get a chance to play this week... can't wait to see what everyone does with the sketch!  I'll be back tomorrow with a more feminine approach to the layout!

  1. What an adorable Father's Day card. I love how you used the trio of flags as trees - so creative. I could see them as sailboats too;)
    Pretty combo of Baja Breeze and the black a& white.

  2. You have no end of EF I like, Julee LOL! Love the dotted chevrons. And the flipped flags - brilliant. I saw them as sail boats in a regatta. Wonderful, clean, crisp lines and a fabulous card as always :)

  3. Great card. Love how you flipped the sketch and used the flags as trees. The embossed layer is perfect. TFS

  4. Awesome masculine card... and I don't know if I have told you this a million times, but I {heart} your sketches.. Seriously! Thanks for always sharing your talents.


Thanks so much for taking the time to brighten my day with a comment! I love hearing from you.
