CTD194 - Happy Father's Day

Good morning friends!  It's Wednesday and time for the Color Throwdown Challenge.  The talented Barbara is our hostess this week and she's chosen some great colors for us to work with.

I have a customer who requested a few Father's Day cards in her order so I used this week's colors to create two cards for her.

For this first card I used the Retro Sketches #13 Challenge for my layout along with the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Happy Day and Houndstooth.  For both cards that I created I used mostly the same materials but just switched them up a bit and used different layouts.  It may be difficult to see in the photo but I stamped the large houndstooth pattern along the bottom right corner in soft sky on top of the My Mind's Eye designer paper to add some texture to that area.

For my second card, I used the Deconstructed Sketch #53 for my layout and the same materials as the card above. 

Supplies: Happy Day & die, Houndstooth, Tag die - PTI, My Mind's Eye dp, Twill, Twine, Brads, Foam tape.
