Happy Father's Day

We have had so much water lately that it feels like we just can't get dry. We are really getting excited about Flordia! We are 5 days away!!!

Here is a fun Father's Day card using a few challenges. This is going to be for my Dad. I used the color challenge from Stamp TV. It was to use Black, Red and White and any shades of those colors so pink and grey are just fine as well. I also used the Card Pattern Sketch #14.
Here is some of the detail work. I know it is blury, but it is the best I can do right now. I hand stiched the butterfly trail. I really liked how it looked so I stiched around the sentiment as well.
Here is the complete card.
I think it turned out cute!!! My Dad will really like it. I had to add the button detail since it was looking really plain. I have a hard time keeping the emblishement simple for the male cards. It was all I could do to not add some bling on that butterfly LOL!
Work has been such a blessing lately, but it is sure cutting into my stamping time LOL! I have to write a contract for 3 lots today and then we have Mother/Daughter banquet at the church, so we will see how much stamping I get done.
It's a good life!

This card is wonderful! I like the hand stitched trail of the butterfly, I may need to try that.
