While I posted a Father’s Day card a few back, my husband had seen that one (a club card). That, and I do like to make sure he gets his own original cards every now and then! Branch Out is the set I wanted to work with for this card. It is one of the few retired sets that I keep just for my very own stamping…mostly because it always makes me happy to work with it. I used a new to me challenge for the layout over at Clean&Simple Stamping. This is their Fall-to Layout #95:
I also used the colors from Stamping 411‘s Thursday color challenge…Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, and Certainly Celery. The Baja DSP is left over hostess paper from when Baja Breeze was an In Color. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to see it come back! Not much else to explain. See, doesn’t this tree just make you happy??
I hope that your family has a wonderful Father’s Day weekend! Give all those Dad’s big hugs for all they do (I know we will!)!!

Wonderful card and I know he’s going to like this. It makes me wish I had bought that stamp set!!
What a gorgeous card! This is a stunner.
Beautiful CAS card! Love what you did with the sketch!
I love this, Jen!! Even as a thumbnail, it just pops off the page, begging to be seen up close! The color combination is fantastic and I love the use of the tree — way to think out of the box!
