Most Tools Wins

Sketch #11

I was totally inspired by this sketch challenge from STAMPlorations.  My mom sent me some alphabet ribbons months ago. When I saw the three little tags on the sketch, I immediately thought it would be fun to spell DAD using the ribbons.  Then I remembered I had some tool stamps by Stampin' Up.  This led me to wanting to create those holey boards where tools are hung.  I used cork paper by Core'dinations and a die by Simon Says.  I embossed the background paper and added some Distress Ink and adhered the cork using screw-shaped brads...and I know have a fun Father's Day card...a whole month early!!!  Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs, Debbie
