A Lick of Paint on Father's Day

Hello lovely peeps

Just popping in to show you the card I made for my Father-in-Law.

I've used the Simply Print version of A Lick of Paint from Lili of the Valley (he is also available as uncoloured digi or a rubber stamp) and cut him out with a small border

I die-cut 'happy' from one of my papers with a Memory Box die and glued it onto a co-ordinating paper (all from the Wild at Heart 8x8 pad by First Edition/Trimcraft)

then cut it into 1.5 cm strips

I made a little template

and used it to cut the top of the strips so they look like fence posts.

I glued them all onto a rectangle of plain card to give it a bit of stability while I shuffled everything around on the card deciding on the layout :o) 

For the greeting I inked up the second part of one of the Simply Sophisticated stamps with Black Memento ink and stamped onto another paper. The clear stamps are retired now but are still available from LOTV as digi stamps.

I attached the greeting to the fence with a couple of brass coloured brads and added some grass, cut with my trusty Icicle die by Die-Sire.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-

Glitter n Sparkle #244 Father's Day/Masculine
Tuesday Throwdown #347 for the men
