Happy Father's Day

Last night at my monthly stamp class, we made three cards...all of them fun and with totally different looks!
This was my favorite, it uses this set which I love but don't know the name and makes one really dramatic Father's Day card. I love the colors and the tree and the elk were stamped in Versamark ink and then embossed with black embossing powder. The moon was masked with a punched out circle and then blue ink was sponged on for the sky.
I am going to go ahead and enter this on the SSIC challenge this week to make a masculine card because I rarely make them...and maybe it will inspire someone else! I did not come up with this design, my SU demo, Carn, did! Thanks Carn, if you're reading this!!
And thanks for looking...I hope to have the final landscaping pictures updated here in a couple of days. They still need to finish the step and are waiting for the quarry to cut the slab for that. Then it will be done!
Thanks for stopping in...hope you are having a good day!
