Simon Say Challenge

Simon Say Challenge:

This weeks Theme is: Anything Goes

So I decided to get in on this challenge this week too.  So Happy to be able to do so.
Here is the card I made for the challenge.

I needed to make a card for Fathers day for my dad which will be here before you know it.  So This one is perfect for that.
I stamped using and old car stamp from stamping up.
I did my background first on my card,
then stamped a piece of paper lighter in color.
I took the paper and ripped it around the image then added ink to the outside edges to give it an antique effect. 
Of course I added A Happy Father's Day sentiment and attached it with brads.
Here is another photo to see in different light:

Ribbon Carousel Monthly Challenge.

This months theme is " Showers and Flowers"

I am so excited that I have time this month to join in the fun.
Time is usually not on my side so this is a big deal for me.  

This one ends April 30th so you still have time to play.

Here is my card:

The paper is just some I had laying around.  But the stamps are from:
Flower: Maya Road 
Butterfly: studio 112
I used Ribbon and Twine on this card.
I do like how it turned out.  I used two toned Ink for the flower and colored in my butterfly with colored pencil.  It worked out nicely too because the ink was not quite dry when I started and it blended with the colored pencil to add a great effect.  
Thanks for stopping by today.
And don't forget you too can still enter this challenge.  The winner gets a Ribbon Carousel.  
Woot Woot.  Wouldnt that be AWESOME!!  
I know I sure could use one.

A little different lighting so you can see the colors a little better.
