Selective Sunday "Manly Card"






I finished this card earlier this week and was saving it for Father's Day. The kids are going to give this card to their dad (The king of the grill) While browsing around Allison's blog last night,I discovered this weeks Selective Sunday Theme is about Manly Cards. Well...my card is the manliest but it is a Father's Day Card though.
Thank you for all of the inspiration and ideas Allison...keep em coming!

Before I get to the details of my card, I hope everyone has a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend! We aren't doing anything special for the holiday, the weather is supposed to be nice and my hubby will probably get his grill out. Yummy...food tastes so much better when cooked on the grill!


The stamp is from Stampendous and the sentiment (King of the Grill) is computer generated. The cardstocks are from SU and the DP is unknown. Inks are Adirondack (Pitch Black) and Copic Markers. Embellishments are copper brads, corner punch,Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Spellbinders Nestabilities Templates, ribbon and extra fine glitter

Thank you for stopping by and have a safe and happy holiday weekend! If all goes well, I plan to stamp as much as possible.
