Happy Father's Day

Today's the day we take the time to let Dad know that he's the best.  At Cupcake Inspirations we have cuppies with ties on them to inspire us.  A sweet (no pun intended) choice for today.  If you Dad doesn't wear ties you can be inspired by the colors and patterns in the photo.  It doesn't even have to be a Father's Day card, it just has to be whatever you are inspired to make.  So everybody can play along. 

All that fun stuff you have for scrap booking can be used on cards too.  Obviously the ties on these cuppies stand out.  That was one element I wanted to use on my card but I don't have a tie stamp (how's that even possible?) so I went looking through my stickers and found some stickers.  I combined them with some stamping to come up with this card.  What will you do?  We sweeties can't wait to see what you do with the inspiration photo so get inky and join us.

Here's the deets:
stamps - Stampin' Up ""Form and Function" and Tim Holtz "Curious Possibility"
ink - VersaMagic "Aegean Blue"; Memento "Dandelion" and "Rich Cocoa"
paper - Stampin' Up "Kraft" cs and "Paper Notebook" dsp
miscellaneous - K and Co. dimensional stickers; baker's twine and mini brads
