Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #11

This is my first entry on this fun blog. They have a great DT and lots of fun challenges. This weeks challenge is Father's Day. I made this card for my husband. It says Happy Father's day on the inside. He is a guitar player and songwriter. He's awesome! (See him in the picture) I got the sketch from a freebie site. It's made by Tracy Drane. Can you tell that this is a guitar? (kinda abstract) In the middle of the guitar, I pasted words to a song that my husband wrote for me. We actually had the song produced last year by a wonderful singer/songwriter named Randy Stonehill. We didn't have the funds to finish the CD project, but this one sounds really great! I've basically paper pieced the rest of the card, and used gold embellies around the center circle.

Thanks for looking!

Hi again! I am so glad to see your new cards!!! Love the elegance of the wedding one... great colors and love the flower. I'll have to check out those challenges! Like I can keep up with the ones I follow now! LOL! On the DT tips... sorry... I didn't go after the ODBD one... they came to me. When I did the CDS one they had a call and challenge and I entered it and was chosen the second try. I'd say have and use and let them know you love their stamps or products... if you really do love them it shows. You do great work so it will happen. I do love your guitar card... perfect for your guitar prince! Have a great weekend! Keep up the good work!!!

Hi Jennifer,

What an INCREDIBLE card! So much LOVE and attention to make it just for "HIM", your husband! I'm sure he'll be absolutely thrilled and filled with emotion when he opens it up on Father's Day! YES...I can see the guitar! What a cool idea...

Of course just stamping on the inside counts...doesn't matter where the stamping is, just as long as it's there somewhere.

Thanks so much for your compliments on the DT...I know I speak for all of us when I say, we appreciate it tremendously!

Thanks for playing along with us this week! Hope you'll join us again soon for some more challenge fun!
