WSC 87 - #1 Dad!

Hi, thanks for stopping by! This week's WSC sketch is a really fun one! I loved all the layers. Sunday is Father's Day here in New Zealand, and given it's Shanan's first as a Dad, I had to make him a special card on behalf of our gorgeous little monkey. Also on Sunday, Jackson will be three months old, where has the time gone?! Monday will be my 30th birthday, so we have a fun long weekend planned! (Fun for new parents means a couple of extra hours of sleep in case you were wondering!)

I stuck pretty close to the sketch this week, combining the tab and flower element into one shape - I used a funky arrow from the Lead the Way Die-namics (links at the end of this post).

I've used stamps from the Masculine Tee set for this card - love that funky moustache image! I also broke out my Seeing Spots embossing folder for the first time in ages....remember when embossing was just the height of cool for cardmakers?! I must show my neglected folders some love. The cardstock has photographed quite dark, that's the awesome Hot Fudge from MFT!

Inside my card I used up the scraps of paper left over.

Here are the awesome products I've used, as always, you can click for more details:
