Glitter n Sparkle DT - Father's Day/Men's Cards

Hello, everyone.  It's Sunday and that means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog. This week our challenge is Father's Day/Men's Cards. I got to play with the adorable Cat Present from Eureka Stamps - you know I am happy when I get to create with a kitty image!  I had fun colouring it with my Prismacolor pencils.  I used a lovely Father's Day sentiment from another of our sponsors, Sentimental Susan from her Buzz'n By Sentiment set.

Here's a close-up of my self-made sentiment at the bottom, which goes with the inside of the card:

Hehe, here's the inside:

Here are the other items used:
  • Dies:  Curious cat, vintage bird cage (Poppy Stamps), bird (Marianne Design), corners (Cheery Lynn)
  • Designer paper:  MME
  • Accents:  Measuring tape ribbon, glittery circle die-cut, heart punch (Michaels), gems, charm (stash)

I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Father's Day/Men's Cards challenge.  We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week, so I hope you'll play along!
