Crazy4Cocoa Challenge #20

It's Tuesday and that means it's time for another Crazy4Cocoa challenge! This week's theme is to create a masculine card with your Cocoa images. With father's day just a few short weeks away, I thought I'd make a card for that occasion.
I paired my Cocoa's oval image (that was a freebie) with another Sweet'nSassy stamp called "super dad symbol." I printed the super dad image, colored it, cut it by hand, and then popped it up on the oval with dimensionals. I hand-cut and embossed a piece of pale yellow cardstock and adhered it inside the oval, beneath the super dad symbol, and added a few mini brads. The Cocoa image was die cut with a Spellbinders Labels 2, sponged with Ranger tea dye ink, then matted with Chocolate Chip cardstock. The dp is BG kraft, the corners were done with a retired SU punch, and I added some brown twine and a button to finish this card.
I hope you'll find time to play along with our masculine Cocoa challenge this week. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create!
Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific Tuesday!

Carol, Just precious. You did such a good job with all of your elements on this card. Love the dp also. The coloring is perfect and the twine and button just finish it off nicely. Well off to get ready to take the babies in to get their teeth done. Hopfully I get some cards made today while I wait for them to come home.

Oh he is super isn't he!?! (and he has a tail) my freebie this week did have a tail but I rubbed it out, (I think)it looked a bit wonky! Fab card!

ps ...and Carol, you are probably right! I did get carried away with Spot the differences, but then I thought,everyone will use their computer to 'see' them! Maybe the 'new' (???) spot the differences will have larger mistakes and fewer of them!
