Dear Father

Hi! Happy Tuesday! This card is for today's Color Challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers to use Old Olive, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Chip! It was the perfect combination for a Father's Day card I needed to make!

I pulled out an old non-Stampin' Up set for this as I don't have many masculine sets that are Stampin' Up. I love these hot air balloons and I can't wait to get my hands on the Stampin' Up set that will be in the new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog!

The sentiment is a Stampin' Up stamp and is from the set, Well Scripted. This set was in the Winter Mini Catalog and unfortunately, is not in the new catalog.

All the accessories, aside from the buttons, I used are Stampin' Up... Mini Library Clips, Linen Thread, Old Olive Striped Ribbon, Old Olive Brads, Chocolate Chip Designer Paper, 1 3/8'' Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Paper Piercing Kit, Stampin' Dimensionals.

This card is for several other challenges as well:

Papertake Weekly Challenge to make a Father's Day Card

Skipping Stones Designs sketch
