Father's Day 2017

 I made my husband a fun Father's Day card- he loved it!  He is a nature buff and just loves Squirrels and birds.



 This card was made entirely with dies.  The tree, squirrels, bunny and the flower buds are by Cheery Lynn Dies. The Cardinals are from an Impression Obsession die. The white border is a Gina Marie die. The leaves are from a MS edge punch that I cut into pieces and applied.

 I applied Distress Oxide inks- first Peeled Paint and Broken China.  Next, I added Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans. The letters/number were cut with Die-Versions  Elegance Font DV411 die.

 I had to buy a bird feeder that spins off the squirrels because they were taking over the back yard!!! Did I mention he even names them?

Challenges:
Come and Get It- Father's Day
Glitter and Sparkle- Father's Day
Pile it On- Put a Bird on It
2 Crafty Critter Crazies- Furry Friends

Thanks for stopping by!
