Father's Day Card

This is a Father's Day card that I have made for my Boyfriends Dad. I used designer papers from DCWV Latte Stack. I firstly cut 3 strips of the papers to form the background, I used a border punch to edge the section that would be on the openening edge of the card, I then adhered the 3 strips to the card blank.

To form the sentiment section, I cut a circle using a 1 1/2" circle punch, I then stamped the "Happy Father's Day" sentiment using Versamark and embossed with detail silver embossing powder. This lovely sentiment stamps is from Stamping All Day. I then cut a larger circle from the Latte Stack papers to layer it up, for the silver backing circle I used a die from Nelly Snellens Circle Multi-Frames set. I layered all these up and fixed to the card using foam pads.

To finish off the card I added some pre-cut silver letters and some silver coloured pearls.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
