Festive Friday #31 Fathers Day Inspiration and New Catalaogue Sneak Peak

The Festive Friday Challenge over at Nicole Derendorf's blog is a Father's Day photo inspiration challenge. You take what inspires you from the photo and use it to make your card.

Here is the photo

And here is my card...

I loved the long horizontal lines on the building and also the colours that came out in the photo. I used the Stripes Embossing Folder to recreate the long horizontal lines and then picked out some of the colours from the photo. The stamp set is a 'Sneak Peak'  called Countryside from the New Annual Catalogue that starts 1st September. Perfect for those Father's Day cards.

Have Fun and Happy Stampin'
