Father's Day/Special Man - Sweet Stampin' DT

Good morning boys and girls!

Another Saturday, another challenge over at Sweet Stampin'! And this week we're looking for father's day/special man creations.

I took the opportunity to ink up a stamp I'd been looking forward to using for a long time. I've not had it all that long, but I'd been after it for a long time, and am so pleased to be able to use it now!
It is of course a fabulous Edwin stamp from Magnolia. And I thought it just perfect for a father's day card, because naturally, my daddy is my hero...

I decided on the colour scheme when I settled on the gorgeous LOTV papers. I just love this new "Father Knows Best" pad (though maybe it should be "Father thinks he knows best", lol), and I thought the blue one had a mediaeval/royal kind of feel to it, so I decided to go with blue and yellow.
I was stumped for ages on how to tackle the sentiment, as I had no stamps with the sentiment I wanted, and I couldn't get a printed one to do what I wanted. Then I remembered that I had a few metal father-related ones tucked away which I bought not long after I first started... And Lo! There was the perfect sentiment to use.

So there we have it. One father's day card. Of course we'd love it if you came and played along after you've checked out all the gorgeous work my fellow Sweeties have put into this challenge for you!

Have a great weekend!
