Father's Day Twisted Easel Card


Hello!  My card today is for the challenge #16 at Joan's Touch to make a Twisted Easel card.
We are to use any color, some patterned paper, and an item sold at Joan's Gardens.  Since Father's Day is near, I decided to make a card for my DH using papers from Graphics 45 "A Ladies Diary" pad that was from Joan's Gardens. There are some great masculine graphics and patterns in this pad...don't let the name of the paper pad fool you. This was a fun card to make and easier than I thought.

Other Supplies:
Stamps: Verve Stamps Fabulous You, Digital Stamp - The Creative Cottage Happy Father's Day
Ink: Memento Peanut Brittle
Paper: Ivory CS from stash, All Patterns - Graphics 45 from Joan's Gardens
Ribbon: Brown Grosgrain from Stash
Die: Nesties Circle

Other Challenges:
Really Reasonable Ribbon: Challenge #96 is Masculine theme with ribbon
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge: Theme is Father's Day or For the men in your life
Charisma Cardz Challenge: Theme is Father's Day
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Father's Day/ Masculine
Craft Hoarders Anonymous: Challenge #9  Fold it.  Used some Graphics 45 paper that I have been hoarding.

I love all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
