Father's Day card

Here is Operation Write Home's new sketch, #116:

I made this Father's Day card for OWH:

This little fisherman rubber stamp is one of the first stamps I purchased when I started cardmaking in 2010. The DPs are MME Lost & Found "Breeze"; the button is made with my button punch, which I haven't gotten out in awhile. I hope a hero's Dad or friend will enjoy this on Father's Day!
Have a good week; thanks for stopping by!

Great cards Sherry! The colors are nice, but I the patterns and little bits of distressing that you did are the perfect touch. It is a sure hit!

Awesome! Perfect distressing combined with perfect papers! Where is that stamp from? I am always looking for more fishing stamps and I do not ever fish! TFS!!!

Sherry Hickey said...

The stamp is Stampscapes' "Wading Fisherman" (186B). The sentiment I'm not sure about (unmounted rubber).

I'm late, so I'm just going to have to echo what everyone said. This card is so awesome! From the paper choice and colors to the stamp, to all the work you did on distressing. And hey, you even did a twofer, since it works for Father's Day muscle challenge. :) LOVE!
