A Father's Day Card

My friend Nancy Edwards used the cutest image for a card she is giving her husband (on Facebook) and I had to have it.  I love Nancy's coloring and all the special things she did to make her card an EVENT worth celebrating for Father's Day.  Visit Nancy at Pink Panoply to see her gorgeous card.

I stenciled the background with "wall paper" and I'll call the floor a "rug".  The image was easy to fussy cut and I adhered it with glue-dots so the image would not be pressed close to the paper.  I was going to pop it up on foam, but actually forgot to do so in my enthusiasm to put the card together.  I'm very happy with the results.

I think this is a picture of a guy relaxing on the weekend with a cool something in his hand to ward off the summer heat.
