For a special man...

Good morning, it's Saturday and the whole weekend stretches ahead, I hope the sun is shining wherever you are, if not just stay indoors and craft! The new challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week is 'Father's Day' or 'for a Special Man'.
I made my card for my  nephew (a car freak!!) as my Lovely Dad is no longer with us.
The image is from a  Papermania set of stamps  , coloured with a red copic, and fussy cut. The black background card is embossed using an Embossalicious folder, the star and circles for the sentiment stamp (part of a Tim Holtz set) are die cut.  A nice and simple card!
We'd love to see your Fathers' Day makes this week, so why not hop over to Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog to admire the lovely creations from the rest of Team Fi and to add your own works of art.... you could be the lucky winner of a fabulous prize from one of our generous sponsors Di's Digis or Marianne Design.
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
