Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello again, back as promised to tell you about the new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

This week our theme is

Father's Day

Our sponsor this week is Cuddly Buddly and our monthly sponsor is The Ribbon Girl who are offering a £10 voucher to the monthly winner.

And here is my card. Father's Day (like Mother's Day is just not something I do) but I had an idea to use this old set from Stampin' Up - one of my favourites so I decided to do a card as if it was for my Dad. I hope he wouldn't have minded the fact there isn't a Lancaster Bomber on it!

I stamped a background of the Visible Image Grunge Check using Crumb Cake ink and I also inked the card candy using Crumb Cake too. I inked round the edges of all of the card and paper using Early Espresso (would normally have used Soft Suede but I had to throw my wee ink spot out the other day as it was dry!
