A Belated Happy Birthday to Ardyth and an early Dad's DAY!

Happy Sunday,

Today my card is actually going to my Dad for Father's Day but it is also a virtual card made for Ardyth. Her Birthday was on Wednesday and Darnell held a hop for her and also asked us to make a card inspired by Ardyth. Now, my card isn't a Birthday card but it was most definitely inspired by Ardyth's love of CAS, bright colours. geometric and graphic style cards. I thought of various ideas to portray all these elements then decided that this embossing folder and bold sentiment together did all this for me! What do you think?

The sentiment is a freebie from Create With TLC and I have just coloured in 'Dad' with promarkers. A very CAS card that I thought was perfect for my Dad-he likes the cards I make that are made with Kraft card-and a 'case' of how I see Ardyth's style.

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:

CAS on Sunday-make it masculine
Cards for Men-Dad
The Sisterhood of Crafters-say it loud
Sweet Stampin' Challenge-Father's Day

Enjoy the rest of your weekend x
