CAS, day 2

Last night my husband asked me if I had a Father's Day card I could send to his dad. I said I didn't, but of course I could make one! The challenges for today: CAS(E) this Sketch and Pink Elephant (Father's Day). Here is my card:

Clean and simple was the style of the day again today - my weekdays are usually jam packed. This new stamp set called Wetlands seemed perfect for the sketch and the occasion - my father-in-law spends a lot of working outside at his house by a small lake. I used generation stamping for the wheat background and stamped the goose twice so I could pop up the top layer. For colors I chose some masculine stand-bys: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. The sentiment is retired, and I used the Stamp-a-ma-Jig to fit the three words inside the tag punch. I made the border between the stamped panel and the DP with thin strips of card stock that were left over from cutting. I added some linen thread to my tag and that was it! Thanks so much for stopping by!
