A Father's Day Card

I made this Father's Day card today using this cute image from Karen's Doodles called What A Catch. Yesterday I found out that I was the second place winner at Karen's Doodles United States Challenge. My prize was 2 digital stamps of my choice from Karen's Doodles. This was one of my choices. Perfect for Father's Day don't you think? I'll be back tomorrow to show you my other pick.

I punched the star border using a punch that I just purchase a few weeks ago. Called Starry Night and is from EK Success. Then I backed the blue cardtock in white cardstock. To continue the stars onto the top of my card I used the border punch to punch out a few stars out of indigo cardstock. I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Dare U 2 Digi Stamp: One For The Boys

Papertake Weekly: Sketch

Tuesday Taggers: It's A Man's World

Creative Cottage: One For The Boys

I had also created this for the challenge at Karen's Doodles United Kingdom but I missed getting it posted in time!!!!
