Celebrate

I was sitting down to make my husband's Father's Day card this afternoon, and I knew I had to have something bold - something that would immediately tell him what a great dad he is to Shane.  The challenge at Heart 2 Heart is to create your own background paper using inks and stamps, so that is what I did.
I used the outdoor denim, cranberry, and sunflower ink on stark white and kraft.  Those stars really stand out and let Jerry know just how much we think he is a star!!  The bottom portion of the paper is random stamped.  I truly fogot how much fun that is, so I was really glad for this challenge!  You haven't seen this stamp set yet.  It's the July stamp of the month (American Celebration), and I'll be telling you plenty about it in July!
