I so appreciate all the comments about my cards for the Less is More challenge to focus on the sentiment. That Father's Day card really didn't suit me and I'm so glad that I shared it anyway because I got so many good ideas from you. These challenges are like classes. There is so much to be learned from sharing with others!
I had about 10 minutes in my card room today and I decided to do the Father's Day card over and see what I could come up with using some of your suggestions.
This is much better I think. I don't have any dark beads and my SU markers don't color pearls so that the color doesn't rub off. I did draw a frame on the edge and tried a little gold bead on the apostrophe. Honestly, I'd take it off, but it's there to stay. Good glue on that one! I liked Susan's idea to score and decided to do the two scored lines at the bottom. I think scoring around the sentiment would look great, but just didn't have the time to do that.
All in all, I think this is a better card. Not great, but better. Oh, and about those little pine boughs....My husband thinks if it has a duck or part of a tree on it, it's good to go. Lol, unfortunately, it's not always good for the rest of us.
I still like the Birthday card better, but I have another Father's Day card done for this year.
Thanks for stopping by and all the comments. I do appreciate it.
