It's almost Fathers Day!

Fathers Day is just around the corner and I have a few to make. I went back to a set I do adore, Natural Beauty! Of course this is retiring set, and I am sad to see it go. I just love this bird for masculine cards! I am back using my Kraft paper. Tee Hee! The designer paper was a scrap piece from the Tickets & Tokens Simply Scrappin' Kit. I stamped on the base of the card with Ephemera Background stamp with White Kraft ink and then embossed with clear EP.

I then stamped the French Script on the Buckaroo Blue. Then edged around the blue. I stamped the bird on Kraft, then watercolored with the aqua painter with watercolor crayons. I edged around the kraft with choc chip. I put some brads at the top and added some paper piercering on the other side and viola!
Now to finish some scrap projects piling on my desk. It is a scrappin' night!!!

What a great card, love the mix of paper and stamps. I find it hard to come up with masculine cards, but this one certainly hit the mark.
