Let It Ride

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I'm going to get right to it. Today's card definitely has a masculine feel. As you know Father's Day is on its way, so I thought, why not. I was inspired by the inspiration photo over at The Play Date Cafe. If you hurry it's not too late to participate in this week's challenge. Just below is the inspirational photo.



Pretty nice selection of hues, right? I had the most difficult time trying to put these colors together. I'm not sure whether it had something to do with the card having a masculine theme or the unnecessary pressure I place on myself. Who only knows. Moving on... This is what I manage to create....



The inside sentiment reads, 'Dad, with every thing you do, you stand out among the rest.' The card stock is from PTI; DP(?); the Happy Father's Day sentiment is from Impression Obsession; the motorcycle and inks are from Stampin Up. I'm not sure whether you can see the motorcycles have been raised with high dimenissionals at the top of the image and flat dimenissionals at the base of the image. I hope you like this card and perhaps it has inspired you in some way.

As always, thanks for visiting The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.
