Tuesday Morning Sketches #41

Good Morning!  I am so excited - I'm off work today and I have the house to myself.  I'm going to be stamping my little heart out!!  LOL  But for today's post, I'd like to invite you over to my challenge blog.  I have a recipe challenge for this week and we are sponsored by Doodle Palace.

First, let me apologize for this horrible photo.  Picasa was being stubborn and cropping my photo.  I tried the manual crop like my friend Lisa suggested, however, that only allowed me so much.  It still cut off part of my picture.  So I resorted to my old photo editing software.  Although very user friendly, no matter what you do to tweak the photo, the colors still look flat.  *Sigh*

The challenge is to use soft hues, flowers and ribbon.  I'm not exactly sure when this card took on the persona of a Father's Day card, but it did.  Since I don't have a Dad anymore to make such a card for, I guess I'll just have the kids send this their dad.  My sister sent me some Unity Stamps that are all about Dad, so I used one of the sentiments from that.  I think she sent them to me intended for a prize.  Ooops!

Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Neenah Milled Ivory,
  Creamy Caramel
Paper:  Father Knows Best collection, Papertrey Ink
Image/Stamps:  Flowers by Doodle Palace, Sentiment by Unity Stamps
Copics:  B000, E53, E57, G99, R27, Y11, Y15, YG95
Tools:  CM Oval cutters, pop dots
Ribbon:  Papertrey Ink

I do hope you'll join us over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  See you there!
