Ok, firstly, I have to wish my dad a Happy Birthday, and secondly, I have to say "Oh my word! Isn't this card cute?!?" (Now dad, if you check this out before you see us tonight, please act surprised ;o) I must tell you, my dad LOVES DQ, and tends to "use" my kids to get there more frequently than any other adult would. LOL! So Big C, L'il C and I, all decided the best gift for my dad would be his very own DQ gift card. No need to rationalize now, right? He can go when ever he wants! (LOL! I have used this theory many times when I have a crafting gift card, or coupon, or heck...just a good old sale is an excellent excuse! I hear lots of heads nodding out there in agreement.....)
Anywho...The sketch comes from the Mojo Monday site (link here for the original sketch, the design team products, and the other entries ). I took the liberty of flipping the sketch 90 degrees to fit my Lots of Bots stamp. And the colors (should be Real Red, So Saffron, Bashful Blue and Old Olive...I was really low on card stock, so had to substitute some colors, see the ingredients list below for the true info) comes from Samantha's SPCC Color Challenge (link here for the swatch, and other gorgeous creations ).
Ingredients (all SU! unless otherwise noted):
Real Red Classic Ink, Ridinghood Red CS, So Saffron 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Barely Banana CS, Bashful Blue Classic Ink, and substituted the CS for a canvas texture CS that I had in my scraps pile, source unknown, Old Olive CS and Classic Ink, Lots of Bots Stamp Set, 1" Square Punch by Marvy, Button from Forever in Time.
