Special Guy

Lots of similar challenges around this week, which is great for a serial masher-upper like me. It also gives me the chance to participate in more challenges, without running myself completely ragged.

Here's a little number I knocked up this morning. I used the script stamp in the corner because I was inspired by the scripty background in the Mojo sketch. Douglas is a great 'go-to' stamp for a man's card, and it was a great opportunity to take a really bold colour palette (Black and Red Geranium Archival, Meadow Adi) and use it in a subtle way.

The sentiment feels quite high, but I can see myself adding an extra word in underneath when I know exactly what I'm going to use it for - could be birthday, or Dad, I'll wait and see.

Less is More # 226: Lucky Dip (2 or 4 legs)
Sweet Stamping - Father's Day/Special Man
Simon Says Wednesday - Make it Masculine
Color Throwdown #345 - Black, White, Red, Green
Mojo Monday #400
