Seashore Stampers Blog Hop - Father's Day - Male Card

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Seashore Stampers monthly blog hop!
This month's theme is Father's Day or a card for a man.  I love working with Stampin' Up!'s Eastern Palace Suite so I created this card for the hop.

Card front
My father loved the combination of green and orange.  So I used the new upcoming Stampin' Up! In Color ink in Tranquil Tide along with Pumpkin Pie ink.

Close-up of card front
If you feel the bling of rhinestones is too much, just leave them off.  Note the rhinestones are also hiding under the flower petals (see above photo) which keep the "petals" raised up off the card. 

Inside of card
I hope this card inspires you to create one too!
Now, please carry on, or back, and enjoy the next stop on this hop:


Happy Inky smiles!
