Father's Day

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  As it is the 5th Wednesday of the month, we have a fabulous sketch for your inspiration:
Image may contain: text
And here is the card I created for your inspiration:
As soon as I saw the sketch, it reminded me of a frame and while I was creating a different card a couple weeks ago, I came across this woodgrain paper.  I thought they would work together perfectly to create a masculine card of some type and I decided on a Father's Day card.  I used screw head brads and even though it may look like I didn't really follow the sketch, I did!  I just used the same paper for the 4 "frame" panels.  You can see that a bit better in the photo below:
 I went with the tool theme as it went with the woodgrain paper and I had the two corner "peg board" pieces in my bits and pieces stash.  I die cut the tools out of silver paper and finished off the screw drivers with some red card stock.  I had a tiny strip of the woodgrain paper left so I added it to the inside to fancy it up a bit.
Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you hop over to the House blog for all the details and to see what the rest of the team created.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, make sure you check out the 10% off your entire order coupon over in my left sidebar.
