Father's Day/Male Card

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments.  The theme this week is Father's Day/Male Card.  As I no longer have my Father I have gone for this:

I have used Dayna Elephant which is available here from Crafty Sentiments Designs. I coloured Dayna with my Prismas for a change but not sure if I am happy with the result.  The papers are Nitwits and I paper pieced the balloon and bow tie.  I used SB Grand Nestie to cut the bottom of the card shape.  The sentiment is Pink Petticoat which I enlarged and printed directly onto Papermill Linen cardstock.

Here is another view:

Hmmm think I may make another in pink for a baby girl.  We have another great prize this week:

Remember you can have up to 6 chances of winning with your project just by using a Crafty Sentiment image and being a follower of the Inspirations Blog!  Please pop over to the challenge at Crafty Sentiments to see what the rest of the DT have done.

Challenges I would like to enter:
