Inkspirations Challenge #82 - Father's Day is looming!

Welcome to the Inkspirations Challenge for another week.  This week you have these gorgeous colours to play with:-

Father's Day is not all that far away for us Aussies, so I thought I would try & be a little bit organised, & make a card:-

I've made embossed frames to house the "d", "a" & "d", which were inked from the words "wonderful" & "favourite", using a marker.  I'll add details of how to make the frames in next week's post, but for now, here's another view:-

The background is a simple collage, using the Extreme Elements set, plus the key image from Artistic Etchings. A spot of die-cutting, embossing & sponging, & I'm all done.  :)

The rest of the Team have some wonderful creations to get you pulling out your stamps & cardstock - go take a peek:-

Helen, love the embossed frames - how did you do that?!! Such a great way to frame a word, especially one as important as DAD!
