MPS Father's Day challenge

Hi everyone!

I hope you're having a fun, fabulous and scrappy good time this Memorial Day weekend! (God bless all of our service men and women ...past and present) :)

Robyn over at My Pink Stamper is having a fun challenge...create a Father's Day project. Simple enough.... until you realize that you don't really know how to do "masculine" stuff LOL  I'm more of a pink-glittery-blinged up-flowery and butterflies kind of girl.  But during my "dark time" last night, (big storm knocked power out for about 3 or 4 hours, bleh...they really need a battery pack for the Cricut LOL)....I used inspiration from Janis' framed card here... I like how it turned out. Note that the glossy accents is still drying, I don't have patience to wait and then take a pic LOL

Man silhouette is from Summer in Paris cut at 2" and I flocked the hat, glossy accented the rest. Didn't like the glitter from the other side of the blue paper for the frame so I went around with brown ribbon. Stickers came from K&Co, found at Michaels today. (Also found Paper Doll Dress Up for $27.98, score!). Pretty simple card, love how it turned out and I think my dad will like it too :)

Thanks for stopping by
