You're A Classic

I'm doing a quick edit here because over at CCEE Stampers their challenge this week is for Father's Day or a Male Birthday and since I just posted this last night I feel it's new enough for their challenge also. I don't think I can come up with a much better Father's Day card than this one. I just love these papers.
When you have papers as spectacular as this sometimes it's hard to stamp on them. I tried creating the Curly Label punch in My Digital Studio, but couldn't get the background to match the papers good enough. I'm still practicing with that software. I looked through my letter stamps, but finally decided since this card is for my Sons' to give to their Dad I would just use my handwriting. So, no stamping, but a little bit of distressing on the Curly Label with one of my CTMH distressing tools and some sepia ink, corner punches, and brads. Wah Lah, a classic.
This is for a new challenge I found, looks like it's going to be a fun one. A new challenge each Sunday, click on the link and check it out if you haven't already.
2 Challenge:
Supplies: Ivory Card Blank 5" X 6 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: Graphic 45-A Proper Gentleman Collection, brown and cream unknown, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Sepia, Marvy-pointed edge punch, Stampin Up-Curly Label punch, Stampin Up-Sizzix Bigz Top Note Die, CTMH marker-brown bag, American Crafts-copper brads, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,

Beverley, I LOVE the classic card. Your layout is fabulous and I think the fact that you wrote the sentiment actually adds so much to the card. Love the colors, too. Gorgeous.
