Happy Father's Day

Welcome to our Happy Father's Day challenge over at Cards for Men!  

That's right, it's that time to start creating something special for your Dad.  You will have until Sunday, June 17th to link up your project for a chance to win a fab prize from our Sponsor. 

I decided to make and Easel card as I haven't done one in a while.  I used dark brown cardstock and matched up some manly paper I had in my stash.

The image is "Three Ties" by Hambo Stamps.  I decided to stitch up the layers and add some buttons along the way.  I also used my iRock tool and fastened studs in place of buttons on the shirt.  I didn't have the right color of stud so I colored them up with my Copics.
