I spell Hero DAD

[If you're looking for my MFT VIP blog hop card, please scroll down to the next post. Thanks!]

Ready for another Color Throwdown!? How about a CAS-tastic Challenge, too? I've got 'em today for you. Broni is our CTD host today and here are the colors she chose:

And, the CAS-tastic challenge for today is to make a Father's day card.

I'm using Mojo Monday Sketch 143 for my layout and I'm fudging a little on the colors. I hope Broni won't send the color police after me ;-) I love this Basic Grey Boxer paper for masculine cards and these colors are very close. I made my "blue ribbon" with My Favorite Things' new Sunshine Die-namics die and punched out the center with a 1 1/4" punch after stamping the sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Fathers. The letters spelling dad are from a Tim Holtz Grungeboard set of alphabets I have and I colored them with Shabby Shutters Distress ink. The twill is new at MFT, as well. I really wanted to add some brads and stuff, but I was trying to keep it, if not really CAS, then not too busy ;-)

Here's the inside:
