OWH Challenges

I'm running a little late with challenges since the Easter weekend, so I made a combined challenge card for both the OWH sketch challenge #116 as well as the mid-week throw-down to make a father's day card. This card was made entirely from scraps in my over-flowing stash. The circle was pre-cut, so I matched it with a little scrap of dsp and added some masculine brads and black alphabet letters that I've had for eons! I embossed the background with a houndstooth ef by CB, and added some stamped doodling along the edges with a G Studio stamp. I need to make a few more cards like this for Dad and get them mailed soon before the OWH deadline for Father's Day cards. I didn't put a father's day sentiment on this, so it can also be used for any occasion, not just father's day.
Thanks for stopping by today and make it a great Wednesday!

Oh, I like everything about this card, but LOVE the Nascar flag brads and the doodling! It also reminds me I have a lot of Nascar stuff left over from scrapbook pages I made when we took our grandkidlets to the Nascar Cafe. I'll have to dig those out for cards.
