It's A Tie!

This funky Father's Day card mixes cajun craze and night of navy.  The sentiment is from the teeny tiny wishes stamp set from Stampin' Up! and is punched out with the word window punch and layered over the modern label punch and the scallop oval punch.

PPA 246

Today I am playing along with the Pals Paper Arts Challenge.  The colors are listed above and here is what I came up with.

The pistachio pudding is very subtle in this card, it is layered behind the vellum.  I used a blender pen to color crisp cantaloupe on the back side of the vellum and stamped the butterflies using the Sale-A-Bration set called Nature's Perfection onto crumb cake.  The sentiment comes from the stamp set Indescribable Gift from Stampin' Up!

Here is the card sketch to play along with
