Dad, Happy Father's Day

Here's a card for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #9.

(Edited to Add: Here's the card description)

I've got to mail a Father's Day card to my sweet Dad by tomorrow to get it to him in time. I used Dawn's color combination (grass green, cream, & black) to help me out.


It was hard finding items in my stash that had the specified green color and cream or black with cream. Most of my stuff had white mixed in, so luckily the Making Memories Chloe's Closet collection had the right green and cream colors! I used strips of black cardstock to thread the buttons (I've never done that); I like the effect.

Thanks for looking and have a good one!

Stamps: Men of Life (PTI)
Paper: Black (CA Paper Goods), Very Vanilla (SU!), Chloe's Closet (Making Memories)
