OWH Sketch challenge 67

It's Sunday and time for another sketch challenge from Operation Write Home! I am knocking out some Father's Day cards this week so that I can mail a box to Kris by FRIDAY. I am committed - I wrote it on the calendar in SHARPIE!!!

Anyhow, I found this really cool burnt orange herringbone patterned DP from a DCWV mod-retro stack and thought it would make a great Father's Day card. My "Dad" stamp didn't fit on my tag :(  so I need to see if I can find another die for a bigger tag, or maybe I can use a Nesties oval.














Card recipe:
cardstock - from the scrap bin, embossed with Cuttlebug argyle folder
DP from mod-retro DCWV stack
American Crafts ribbon
Momento Chocolate Brown ink
Verve's Father Figure stamp set 

Thanks for looking! Play along here and learn more about Operation Write Home!
