Hold Your Breath Father's Day Card

Hold your breath, Marlena is aiming for perfection.

(stamp:Verve Strong Anchor  dies:My Favorite Things Cross-Stitch Oval Stax,Avery Elle Dotted Elle-ments,Sizzix tag)

 Okay, maybe not perfection, 

but it felt like meticulous surgery, lining up the elements. ;)
I tried to keep it as neat and intentional as possible...
just like my dad.  
As I was placing each piece down, I'm thinking...
"don't breathe, steady...steaaaady..."

 Thanks for stopping by!

Great card Marlena. Love the mix of the patterned paper. The bright bow and the banners to the side just finish it all off and pull the card together. A fantastic use of this weeks challenge colours. Thanks for playing along this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo
