Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge-June 2016!




Hi, Friends!

It's time once again for the Paper Sweeties Monthly Challenge!  Yummy cupcakes with ties for Father's Day...how sweet!  You can follow the colors, the photo, or whatever your heart desires for the challenge.  We just want you to join in on the fun!

A $20 gift certificate goes to one lucky winner of the challenge!  This is my second post for today, so please scroll down to see my card made for Dies R Us Challenge!

 And, here is my card...




For my card, I started with a white card base and added a green plaid panel from Doodlebug.  The background was water colored with Gansai Tambi paints.  The suits are from the stamp set Best Dad.  And, the sentiment is from the set You are the Most Wonderful, which was stamped on die cuts from Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders. Dots from Doodlebug and twine from American Crafts to finish the card.

Please hop along and view more inspiration from my teammates...
