If you upload to Splitcoaststampers, please use the keyword FLLCMAYRW2. Entries must be in before Friday, May 11th at :00 p.m. EST. To enter, make sure you link up your creation over on the Flourishes blog using the Inlinkz widget!
For my card, I used the image of the father and son playing some football from the new Father's Day stamp set. I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder (the sentiment, too). I cut out the image with a Nestabilities Rectangle die, embossed the edges and sponged inside with a little Antique Linen ink. I kept the whole card pretty simple, since it's supposed to be "for the boys!" I embellished with some Ivory Cotton Twill, baker's twine, and a football charm from my stash (I knew those things would get used some day!) The papers I used are from Cosmo Cricket's "The Boyfriend" mini-deck, shown below... which is also on sale right now in the Flourishes online store since there's a great Spring sale going on! Be sure to check it out HERE.
