It's Your Day Dad!

What, I have my Dad's birthday card done already? But his birthday isn't until mid January!!! What has come over me!!! My attempt at being organized I guess...let's see how long this trend lasts!!! LOL!!! Anyway, the stamp set I used is PTI's "Wreath for all Seasons" and the sentiment is by TAC. I'm submitting this card to two challenges:

First I used the sketch from Critter Sketch Challenges. They post every Monday so be sure to check 'em out. My card measures 4.25" square, a fun little size that I enjoy making.

And as for the color combo, I went with Picture Perfect Creations challenge of Tempting turquoise, Always artichoke, Chocolate chip and Tangerine tango. They too post every Monday some fab combinations!!!
I have to make this a short post, the kids are due home from school any minute now, and they always come home hungry!!!!! See you tomorrow.

WOW, WOW, WOW. Linda your card has the wow factor and it just makes you smile. Your dad is going to love, love it. The way you used the colors for a mascline card just rocks! I usually make 5.25 inch cards but recently made a 4.25 and loved it. Yep, I am going to use your idea for sure. Thank you so much for joining us this week at PPC. I loved seeing your work.
