Time to Celebrate Father's Day!

Time-to-Celebrate-Father's-

Hello my friends! Happy Sunday! With Sunday comes another Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge! Today, our challenge hostess is the sweet and talented Lisa! Lisa has chosen (Eph 6:2-4 NRSV) for this week's Scripture verse! "Honor your father and mother"--this is the first commandment with a promise: {3} "so that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth." {4} And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord."

Lisa's challenge is to make a Father's Day card or a card praising our Father in Heaven.

I'm enjoying vacation with my grand kids and we are running and having fun! I look forward to this time all year long! So my post will be short today! I know Lisa's devotional will be wonderful so please be sure to check out the Stampin Sisters in Christ Blog to read it and get all the details on the challenge!

For my card I used this month's release from Our Daily Bread designs called Time, and also Father's Day. I used BoBunny Timepiece dp, Prism Copper Metallic, and Bazzill for the base. I embossed my image with Ranger Copper embossing powder and purposely over heated it so it lost it's shine, but retained the copper color. I love copper, but I wanted this to look old, and the shiny just didn't work for me! LOL! So after I embossed, I sponged, crumpled up and sponged some more, distressed all my edges and sponged some more.... trying to achieve that old feel. I embossed the dp with a Cuttlebug folder and sponged it. I stamped some twill that I had saved from a bundle of towels I had purchased some time ago with T H Distress Ink in Walnut Stain with the words Husband and Father from the Father's Day set. I embossed the Time to Celebrate sentiment the same as the clock and added a T Holtz brad.

The sketch I used was for this week's Midnight Madness Sketch#107.

Grace this is awesome. I love what you did with that embossing folder. The way the ink clings to it really shows it's beauty. Your main focal point is delightful as well. Thank you so much for playing along with Speedy's Friends! I love coming to view and enjoy your work.

Bear Hugs,

Grace - I love your card, it reminds me of my Dad. He was a watchmaker/jeweler and this would have been the type of card he would have loved.
Love your color choices and the watch hand on the sentiment.
Thanks for playing in our 'Wedding OR Father's Day' Challenge #23!
