Happy Father's Day³

This Father's Day card is for my Dad. Every summer, my Dad tends to a huge flower, fruit and vegetable garden and there are usually enough melons harvested in the fall to last through the entire winter. He's now 81 and still working away happily on his garden. It's amazing! Most of the flowers in my Dad's garden are purple or yellow and this is the reason I wasn't afraid to create a pretty floral card for my Dad who's coming over tomorrow for dinner. The huge flower is made from the two sizes of hearts punched from Heart Prints, then crumpled to make it look more realistic. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the end of your week!!

I love your beautiful flower, the combination of yellow text and green flourish is just right, I'm certain your father will love it, xx

Wow, that flower is so gosh-darn fabulous! I love your ability to add so much texture and interest without using dp. You make me want to break out my swirly-flourishy stamps!
