saturday stamping...

Hello everyone!  I managed to squeeze in a very rare Saturday play time and get a couple of cards done. One I will share with you tomorrow but this one I thought I would share today.  For this card I used the Happy Fathers Day set from Our Daily Bread Designs and combined a couple of challenges.  Now I rarely do the Inspiration challenge over on SplitCoastStampers.  Not because I don't like the challenge but mostly because it is on Saturday and usually my Saturdays are pretty overbooked.  Well today I had time to play along and per the challenge the place to look for inspiration today is the Green Rainbow website.  I found a lot of inspiring things on the website but what caught my eye the most was this recycled leather mans bracelet.
Isn't it cool and really rustic looking?  Well it inspired this...
The sketch for this card is from last weeks Crazy 4 Challenges sketch.

What I used:
ODBD Happy Fathers Day
very vanilla, chocolate chip card stock
7 gypsies venice designer paper
Versafine black stamp pad
Tim Holtz brushed corduroy distress ink
sponge
Copic markers
Spare Parts screw head brads
tonic distress tool
clear embossing powder
