Father's Day card for my Husband

***You can click on pics to enlarge them to full screen size!!!***
I finally completed this last night. I found a very similiar card on SCS and just made a few changes to better fit my style. The green base is Kiwi Kiss Textured CS, only two other papers, Whisper White and Basic Black. I used Lovely as a Tree and the Father's Day stamp from All Holidays. The black dots under the sentiment are 1/2" circle punches stuck on. I will squeeze some Crystal Effects on them to dry tonight to look like black jumbo brads!!! I love shortcuts like that!
The card front was so heavy, I had to add more weight than usual inside the card just so it would stand up straight!!!
The background in these photos are my new cushions on my back patio dining set, Basic Black, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Kiwi Kiss and Real Red!!! I thought it matched the card nicely for pics!!! I will have to post a pic of the whole set soon as well as my new front porch furniture set.
All items SU!
