Commissioned Father's Day Card

I was asked to make several Father's Day cards and here is one of them.  I have used an Ooh-la-la Creations freebie of a gorgeous seaside scene - oh I wish I was there now!!!  I have used various backing papers from my stash so I am unsure of where they are from.  All I know is that two were digital ones so I apologise to the designers for not knowing where they came from.  That's what happens when you have bits and pieces to use up.  I have used a Double Do die and distressed it with Tim Holtz's Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink Pad.  The card is finished off with some ribbon, card candy and an insert designed on the computer.

This card fits the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss - One for the boys
Magical Crafts Fortnight Challenge - Something for a male/Father's Day
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Father's Day/Male card
Cupcake Craft - One for the boys
Crafty Cardmakers - Cards for men
A Crafty Little Place - One for the boys
Creative Inspirations - One for the boys
Fab n Funky - Just for dad
Meljen's Designs - Fibres, ribbon or lace.

I think this card is my favorite of the cards you created. There is something so lovely about the beach scene and the design of this one. The inside is just as pretty and the sentiment is one that holds some humor...I love that.
