Muse Challenge #14--Merci

I'm finally throwing my hat in the ring for this week's Muse Challenge.  What I really loved about this card was the masked circle and the white "frame" around the flowers.  I took the liberty of making it horozontal, monochromatic and bold.  I forgot how much I love PTI's Giga Guide Lines.

Here's Virginia Lu's inspiration card:

Here's mine:

Paper: PTI White, MFT Steel Grey

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.

Father's Day & CFC 105

Hello again.  I'm just briefly coming up for air after hiding from the freight train of the end of the school year.  Graduation, birthdays, camping trips, and Father's Day--all in the same week?  Um, okay.

Anyway, here is a Father's Day card for my dad (and a twin one for my FIL).  I love this World Map stamp!  This also qualifies for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge, using maps.  Yahoo!

Stamped on white cardstock in Versamark, then heat embossed in white.  Then I used Distress inks to sponge on the color.  Love this look!

The inside of the card says, "Dad, Grandpa, Father-in-law.  Happy Father's Day!"

Paper: PTI Kraft, White
Ink: Versamark, Distress Inks--Faded Jeans, Shabby Shutters
