Timeless Wisdom, Wonderful Father

I have just returned home for attending the bi-annual Gulf Coast Paper Crafters' swap. What a sensational day of card making and fellowship with fellow stampers! This is the Father's Day card which I created to share with the girls at the swap. This fun fold makes a great stand alone design.

Stamps: Father's Pocket Watch by Kitchen Sink Stamps
Paper: Gray Bazzill, Whisper White and Basic Gray by Stampin' Up, Silver Shimmer Paper
Inks: Watch - 3 Memento Tuxedo Black, 2 SU Going Gray, 1 SU Sahara Sand
Sentiment - SU Sahara Sand and Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellishment: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, black tiles

Monday in the Kitchen Sink also brings another 10 Minute Card Challenge. Today's challenge is a one layer card with an out-of-the box stamped KSS image, a sentiment, and a frame drawn with a pen or colored pencil. I used a metal ruler to create the square frames and I drew around the inside edge of my Nestability to create the circular frame.  Should you wish to play along, upload your card to the Kitchen Sink Gallery and add 10MC15 as you keyword.
