For You Dad


Hello, hello!  It's time to pop in and share a card for CAS-ual Fridays!  I started with a one layer card for this design, but decided I wanted a bit more color on the card so I trimmed out the top layer and popped it up on a blue card base!  I admit to being a bit challenged on good color combos so I used this color board from Pinterest to inspire my card. 

I love the Brickworks set that I used for the sentiment on this card. It has great combinations of sentiments for this time of year (graduations and father's day!).  I used up all my grad cards over the weekend getting ready for the six parties we have coming up to celebrate graduations!  So...I decided to change it up and move on to the next holiday, Father's Day!  The graphic portion of the card uses the amazing Zigs and Zags set...if you love chevrons this is a must have for you!

That pattern is so funky cool and perfect for a dad card. I'm with you in the colour department - I struggle to put colours together on my own. Thank goodness for all the colour inspiration out there!
