Father's Day Inspiration

Good Morning.  Father's Day is just a month away so I wanted to share a little inspiration with you.  I think the Warbler cling art stamp by Layers of Color makes a perfect Father's Day card.  One of the things I like about this stamp is the size!  This card is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" and the Warbler is still the center of attention.

I also want to take a moment to give you a head's up on an upcoming blog hop / challenge over at the Christian Paper Crafts Creative Blog HERE.  You can click on the banner on my side bar to check out all the rules for playing along.  Last month I won a free stamp set, so it's definitely worth checking out.  The theme this month is "For the man in your life".  So get busy creating and be prepared to link your project by midnight May 23rd.  Mr. Linky will be live on May 22nd on the Christian Paper Craft Blog.

I hope you will join us!

Fabulous card, Melisa - love the way you have made the warbler the focal point and accented him with the other elements.
Father's Day here is celebrated in Sept, so I have plenty of time to create ;-)
