Dad's and More -- plus some new sketch challenge players!

For those of you that have been reading my blog for a while you may recall how I dislike to be limited on how I can use my stamps. So with that in mind I set out to create a non Father's Day card with this Father's Day stamp from All Holidays stamp set. I am quite happy with the results and just thrilled to be able to use this stamp for more than Father's day!

Stamps: All Holidays

Paper: Ruby Red, River Rock, Blue Bayou and Whisper White card stock and Western Sky and Blue Bayou prints dp

Ink: Ruby Red

Other: double stitched ribbon, Nestabiltites dies, scallop blade for edging

Now for some more sketch players!

What a great idea! This is why I don't buy a lot of the sentiment sets. I'll have to start rethinking that!
