Taylored Expressions - Dad Tools

Today, I have the card made from my Dad's 90th birthday!  I used a stamp from Taylored Expressions called "Dad Tools".  He loved tools and could fix anything back in the day.  He also did a lot of woodworking after retiring.  The 3 patterned papers are from Simple Stories Aweso{me} paper pad.

I stamped "Dad" on a piece of Kraft and Xpress It cardstock with Mementos black ink.  The kraft cardstock was cut with a nestabilities die, then stamped with a woodgrain stamp (A|Muse) using dark chocolate (PTI) ink.    
I colored the "Dad" stamped on the white XPress It cardstock with Copic markers and cut each tool out them paper pieced them on the woodgrain base. The image was matted with PTI Enchanted Evening cardstock and screw head snaps were added in each corner.

Stamp: Taylored Expressions "Dad Tools", A|Muse woodgrain background
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories Aweso{me}
Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, Memento Black

Sketch Saturday Challenge #269

We have a new sketch challenge today at Sketch Saturday!  This week our sponsor is Stamp Fairy and they generously let us pick a digi to work with.  I chose Charlie - Happy Life and there is a free bone download to go with him.  I thought it was perfect for this weeks sketch.

Here is Sketch #269 (designed by Jen):

I followed the sketch pretty literally this week. The patterned paper is a digital paper from Clearly Digi Stamps, part of Shih-Tzu.   The paper was cut like the sketch and the corners were rounded. 
I layered 2 circles and popped the dog and bone on the front.  This card came together pretty quickly.

Supplies --
Digis: Stamp Fairy Charlie - Happy Life  and free bone download
Digi Paper: CDS Shih-Tzu
Cardstock: PTI Kraft, Vintage Cream, Enchanted Evening
Dies: Spellbinders Circles
Corner Round
Copic Colors: E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E29, B41, B45, B37
