MOJO292 ~ Happy Father's Day ~

Happy Saturday morning to ya!  Mother's Day is almost upon us and I find myself creating Father's Day cards???
 I wish I could say I'm ahead...  but the fact is... I'm not!!!  **sigh** 
 
Today's card features the MOJO Monday  sketch and a new stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs .  The card has a decidedly masculine feel and I even tried my hand at a sailor's knot...  they are not nearly as complicated as they look!  Whew!!!  So here's the card...

 
and the stamp set,
 
 

I chose a cream colored card stock for my base and added a layer of distressed Kraft.  The DPs are from a coordinating set...  (love when the paper takes the guess work out of it...)  I used Our Daily Bread Designs' Spellbinder custom die, Cathedral Window & Border Die  (the border die) to cover the seam between the two DPs. 
 
A small Spellbinder die provided the circle die which I topped with a nautical charm and sailor's knot.  I placed the Kraft tag and other Kraft panel side by side before stamping my image.  Then I removed the smaller piece and matted it with a bit of the cream colored CS.  Another bit of this same CS provides my sentiment panel.  I stamped both the image and sentiment with a rich brown ink...  kinda reminds me of an old treasure map! 
 
Thanks as always for stopping by...  until next time...  Blessings....
