Father's Day Card

My mom wanted a father's day card for my grandfather, so this is what I came up with:



My grandpa loves fishing, and some of my favorite memories are of all of us down at the little lake tossing a line in the water.



Grandpa was so devoted to my grandmother, and we wanted to be sure to include a quote about how much his love for her meant to all of us.



I used various scraps of cardstock that I had in my stash. I used my new Sizzix Texturz Plates to make the embossing on the brown and beige backgrounds. I sanded the brown cardstock to bring the core color to the surface. The blue background paper is mullbery paper. The words were stamped using my poetry stamp set. The stickers are from Jolee's. All of the edges were inked using ColorBox chalks.

I hope you like my latest card. Thanks for checking it out.
