Father's Day!!

I made this card based on a Papyrus card that I found online...THAT one was done in black, orange and gray and was machine stitched...I just got my sewing machine back after a 7 month absence...but didn't know how to use it for the 10 months I had it before that...and although I can now thread it after tonight's trial...sewing on cards is going to take some serious practice!!
I made 1" long strips in marina blue, gray and black, all textured papers for added interest(kind of looks like fabric since finishing it:)!!) and cut those into 1" x 2" and 1" x 1" pieces.  I started in the middle and randomly placed and attached the squares and rectangles  to a scrap piece of 4 x 5 1/2 cardstock. I used a spellbinders square die and cut out a square at the top and placed 2 other die cut square pieces(for same depth) in the die cut out area of the card....with the sentiment(Stampin Up All Year Cheer II) stamped on one of them.  I took a black thick tipped pen and drew dotted lines around the blue and gray pieces...so theraputic:)!!  Attached the panel to a regular piece of cardstock...love that it's so flat!!  Great for sending!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
