Father's Day with a twist!


I hope you had a chance to check out The Outlawz Summer Party this past week! We saw a lot of awesome entries in the challenges and I for one can not wait to see who wins all of those fabulous prizes!
This week The Outlawz POM challenge is adding a twist to the challenge. With Father's Day right around the corner we would like you to create a Father's Day project...and the twist include a handmade embellishment on your project.
Here is my sample...

My hand made embellishment is the little flag. I use a toothpick for the flag pole and added faux stitching around the flag itself. I also added stitching to the twill tape. I am not sure if that actually counts but I gonna say it does! ;o)
The sailboat is from Gina K Designs Enjoy the Sunshine and the sentiment is from her Tech Talk stamp set.
The papers are SU and Bazzill. The pattern paper is from Basic Grey's Archaic collection.

I hope you will play along with us this week. I can not wait to see what everyone makes for their handmade embellishment!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Stamping SisterHood of Crafters - Celebrating Dad, Creative Card Crew - Ribbons and Brads, Part Time Tuesday's - Father's Day and Simon Says Stamps - Distressed/Torn edges.

WOW, this is fabulous! I love the flat and that neat wire netting behind the image. I really like how the edge of the image is distressed...almost looks like it was partially burned in a fire! Fantastic job! =D

That card is fantastic!! I have not joined in on anything at the Outlawz yet even though I've been a member since they began because life has just gotten in the way right now! I'm hoping by September things will be settled down here and I can to join in all the fun! My sister is on the DT and I feel bad for not being able to support her there yet.

Your card is beautiful! I love the stamped image of your ship and the way you colorized it. Your torn and distressed edges are the perfect application for this card! Love your color scheme, too! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Hugs-Candy
