BBTB2 - Happy Father's Day

Happy Monday!

I have the craziest week ahead and to top it all off...
Father's Day on Sunday!

Not. Even. Close. To. Being. Prepared!!!

At least I have a card ready,
thanks to BBTB2 ;)

Our challenge this week is
Father's Day.

I picked up a new paper pad at Hobby Lobby,
I haven't bought new paper for a LONG time!
I really love the masculine colors and patterns.

I used Summer Celebrations for the tie cut
and was inspired by a sketch from Mojo Monday.

The sentiment is from a $1 stamp set I picked up
along time ago at Robert's.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2 this week!

So my DT sister Katrina recommended a YouTube channel
for some fun tutorials and I decided to check it out!
I highly recommend you take a look at her amazing videos too!

I watched a video on some embellishment paper clips
and I had to try them out.
However, I didn't have any of the cute spiral clips,
so I decided to use clothes pins instead.
I think they turned out super cute!!!

My paper is from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby),
that I picked up years ago.
I cut one of the flowers from Art Philosophy,
the bigger one is 3" and the smaller one is 2".
I inked up the edges with some black ink and added
a black flat back rhinestone for the center.
I used my ATG Gun to adhere
the flowers to the clothes pins.

I really like how they turned out.

I hope you will join us for "Summer School"
this week over at Cut It Up!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
