DT post for new Father's Day challenge at SCH

Hello! The new challenge starting today at Sugar Creek Hollow is to make Father's Day cards. You have two weeks to post your creation(s); please see the SCH website for challenge guidelines. Here is my card:

The marvelous "collar" image is from Clearly Vintage. The background collage is from Free Vintage Digital Stamps. I embellished the collage with bits of ephemera, banners, button and key. The brad is from Stampin' Up. My inspiration was recalling my dear Dad and some of the typical things he'd have on his dresser top. This is a very old photo of my handsome Dad, Paul Donovan. He was a good man, a proud and funny Irishman, and the best Daddy in the world! (Thanks for indulging that bit of nostalgia on my part!)

I also posted my card for the Father's Day challenge at Sweet Stampin'.; the Anything Goes challenge at The Hobby House (their 1st challenge-fun!); and the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings Challenge.

Be sure to stop by Sugar Creek Hollow to see the other beautiful Design Team creations, as well as one by our talented guest designer, Ragnhild! You won't want to miss this and I hope you'll join in the fun of creating a vintage or shabby chic card for Dad. You have two whole weeks!

Love it Sherry! The mix of vintage buttons, the tiny key and the collage background are terrific. This is such a good example for 'non-coloring' card makers too... you prove it IS possible to make a great card and not have to color anything.
