Simple Father's Day Card

Hello and Happy Saturday!!!  It's time for another challenge at My Sheri Crafts and this week we are recognizing Father's Day.  Let's Celebrate The Men In Our Lives!

My card is pretty simple, but I like the way it turned out.  It's made completely from scraps!

The background is made with  the negative pieces left on the mat after I cut a background page from Paper Lace. 

I used a gold gel pen and doodled around each piece, then placed them on a diagonal.  The sentiment is backed by a scrap of shiny gold cardstock and then I used a Fiskars border punch across the bottom.  Easy Peasy! 

So now it's your turn!  Celebrate your men and join us at My Sheri Crafts.  You just may be our next Guest Designer!
