FMS39: Happy Fathers Day with Lovely As A Tree

Great sketch from Freshly Made Sketch challenge. I needed to make a Father's Day card and I thought this layout would be great with the Lovely As a Tree stamp from Stampin' Up! I also used Faux Suede technique to create the vertical panel to create some additional texture. For the tree image, I colored the stamp with SU watercolor crayons, spritzed it with water and then stamped on watercolor paper. Thanks for looking.

And, now for the details...

The Stamps
SU Lovely As a Tree
SU Delightful Dozen

The Colors

Very Vanilla
Chocolate Chip
Always Artichoke

The Embellishments

The Tools

And, now for the sketch...
