Embellish Friday Challenge #46 - Fabulous Fathers

This week's challenge over at Embellish-Online is hosted by my fabulous friend Michelle....we actually get together regularily and craft together! She's an AWESOME teacher!!! Michelle challenged us to create a card, project, or layout that celebrates the Fathers (or other men, be they tall or small) in our life!

Normally masculine cards are VERY hard for me....but it is my Dad's Birthday Party tonight (his birthday was yesterday) so I had a lot of fun making him his extra special birthday card. I used the faux bleaching technique with my color washes for this card. I also used the lollipop tutorial from The Next Level challenge blog to create the "masculine" looking flower for my card. We all know how much I love my flowers! I had a regular flower on the card to start out but it just did not look right...then I remembered the lollipop technique and thought that would be the perfect addition to my card.
And of course the finished inside of the card:

Recipe:
Stamps: Peterbilt Truck Stamp, Stampendous word Stamp
Inks: Momento Rich Cocoa, Adirondack Color Wash in Denim & Espresso
Papers: Stampin' Up cardstock, Basic Grey Granola Collection dp
Tools: Curved Rectangle Nesties, MS ribbon punch, EK Success leaf punch
Embellishments: Roses, Glimmer Mist - Iridescent Gold (used on lollipop "flower"), ribbon, tulle, brad, and custom made hat pin made by me.
Now, head on over to the Embellish-Online Blog to get the rest of the details. We would love for you to play along.

Thanks for stopping by....hope your Friday is WONDERFUL!
