My Fathers Day Card

I wanted to stay away from the usual blues for men's cards - so went with greens and browns. I used a green coloured card, base paper is Papermania Retro Florals. The band is green and brown layered card. I wanted some large letters but didn't have any stamps large enough. So printed out the letters on my PCon green card and cut each letter out. I added 3 green brads to each card and attached them using 3D foam pads. My dad loved it!
