Today I made a Father's Day card for my husband. I'm planning on getting him a gift, and I took the kids to the store and they each picked out a $2 gift for him. They were so cute looking for things for their dad, and I think he's going to love them. I'm trying to find a charcoal grill for him, but no luck today. I still have a couple of days, so I think I can find it.

The card uses the sketch at Atlantic Hearts with the bird on the tree branches. The colors are from Color My Heart - Toffee, Juniper, and Pomegranate. I used Desert Sand instead of Toffee, because I don't have it yet. I'm also entering this into the Father's day challenges at Heart 2 Heart and Crazy 4 Challenges.

I kept this card simple with just stamping. I stamped the branches in Desert Sand and colored them in. I colored in the leaves with Juniper. The bird and the sentiment are stamped in Pomegranate and selectively filled in with Desert Sand. The inside simply says, "Happy Father's Day."

Materials used:
Cardstock: Pomegranate, White Daisy
Stamps: Sunshine Birdies
Ink: Desert Sand, Juniper, Pomegranate
