Mashup #6 and CAS #2 - Best Dad Ever!

This afternoon I have a card for you all that was inspired by two challenges and a NEW stamp set from the Summer Mini that I've been dying to use!! So here goes...


The first challenge was for Friday Mashup. They wanted to see Masculine Monochromatic cards this week for Challenge #6.


The second challenge was for CAS-ual Fridays. They wanted us to use buttons and twine this week for Challenge #2. I'm a button-aholic so I jumped on this challenge!!



Besides the challenges and the NEW stamp set that inspired me this week, I have to say that my hubby's new shirt and tie combo also helped me with this challenge! Don't you just love that green???


So here's my card!



I finally used my Best Dad Ever Stamp Set! When my hubby saw this card he pointed to the tie all the way at the right and said, "Hey, there's my tie!" Ha ha!




New Stamp Set: Best Dad Ever (Wood Mount #120399 $18.95, Clear Mount #120681 $14.95, page 13 of the mini).


Supplies Used (All SU)
