Father's Day Card and ICSketches #19


Don't laugh but... I don't have much ribbon that you would call "masculine" so... I used a Gap gift bag handle. And no, I didn't stop there. I also lack chocolate coloured cardstock so I used the paper from the gift bag as well. It was double-sided so I decided to make use of the patterened paper, too. I thought the squirrel from the Happily Ever After cart was so adorable that I had to incorporate it somehow. And it's funny that the pink, yellow and blue of the Gap-themed colours kind of coincide with the colours on Dawn's sketch at ICS this week. Anyway, this was a fun card I put together with the help of my three-year-old daughter, who was adament on using pink in the layout and putting on the stickles. She is so into pink these days!
