Happy Father's Day for the CARDS Challenge

Eeeekkk!!! I am so excited to show you my newest card, because I LOVE it!  It is clean and simple, manly, and perfect for this year's Father's Day... and before I go any further if you are my husband you had best stop being supportive at this point if you are reading my blog today and pretend like this post never happened... hehehehe!  Now this card was based on the CARDS challenge going on right now, and at first I was stumped when I looked at the sketch provided, but then it all just kind of clicked! :)

I turned the sketch a little and made this:

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Studio Calico
Die: Lawn Fawn
Stamp: Precious Remembrance Shop
Ink: Memento
Mini Clothes Pin and Buttons from my stash
Gesso: Martha Stewart

I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Masculine 
and The Pink Elephant Challenge: Father's Day

Thanks so much for visiting and have a fabulous rest of the day!
Happy Crafting!
