SweetStamps "Dad" Challenge

This week is our 120th challenge! "DAD"

Be sure to check out the blog to see all the great cards that the 
Design Team and others that have entered, have made!  
Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp 
you get two entries into the challenge for 
a chance  to win a $20 shopping spree. 
Check the Sweet Stamps blog for details.

I found the perfect paper to use on my dad's
Fathers Day Card. 
He loves old signs and antiques.


I cut the two front corners to give the card a different look, 
and so you can see the newspaper print on the inside.

Detail of images used. 
Also I love to use the ink and sponge to "edge" the papers.

Love the design with the vintage look of the papers. I love how you did the corners so you can see the paper inside too. Love the variety of DP you used for the layers inside and out.
