Peachy Keen Challenge 12 - Sketch

     Hello again,  it's Wednesday and time to upload my card for this weeks Peachy Keen Challenge which is a Sketch. I drew the sketch on my white board and looked at it a dozen times a day since friday. I kept running ideas around in my head but nothing seemed right. Earlier this evening while trying to watch Idol but thinking more about the challenge it came to me. So I missed American Idol and came up here to create this!
                  The Sketch                                                                        

 My Card 

     I knew I wanted to make a Father's day card but everything I tried just wasn't working, sometime's I find it so hard to make masculine cards, do you have that problem to? 
     I made the strip with one of my EK success border punches that I ran through on both sides, wow that was close...it was just wide enough but I thought it looked pretty cool, what do you think? The strip on the inside is the negative from the stars I cut out to make a little banner that said Thanks DAD, but it didn't look right either. I used the small  fiskars four leaf clover punch to write #1 and to stand for two things  "your  #1" and "I'm 'lucky' to have you for my dad". 
     All paper is from my stash, I have drawers and drawers of scrap paper that I am trying to use up, I go to them before cutting a full sheet and rarely know who it's by. The stamp on the front is from a $1.00 studio G set from Michaels, the bird and the inside sentiment are from the PK-268 Happy Mother's Day set, but I didn't ink up the first part of the sentiment which says Thank you! The mats for my lil birdie are spellbinders classic squares and classic scalloped squares, I just doubled up the white ones to create my rectangle. What do you think? 
    Please let me kknow what you think of my card so I can pop over to you and check out what you've been up to lately and leave you some love to. Have a great day and happy scrappin'!

  1. Cindy your card is fantastic. Very clever use of a clover. I love the punches and spellbinders you used. That little birdie is adorable!!!! The sentiment is just perfect. I do have the same problem, making masculine cards, but yours is perfect!

    I am also trying to use all my scraps before cutting another sheet of paper, that is why my colors are somewhat repetitive ;)Thank you for your sweet comment it made me feel better to learn that I am not the only one with this addiction LOL and I wish I had an aunt like yours!!!! ;)BTW I am a new follower ;) Have a great day!

  2. Cute card and great take on the sketch!

  4. Great job on your card and good luck also. Thanks for stopping by :)

  6. Perfect for a Dad- They do teach us a lot.

  7. Hey girlie, I love your card! I love the simplicity of it and it is straight to the point with regards to the sentiment. Yeah, Dad's are great teachers that's for sure, and yes I too have trouble with masculine cards. It you keep it simple and use masculine colours and papers you usually fare well. You Dad will love it! :)S
