Paper Blooms Challenge #11

Today over at the Paper Blooms challenge blog, we were challenge to come up with a card for a man who has influenced our lives. This was truly a challenge to me. I wish I could take credit for the idea, but it was my wonderful husband who helped me to develop the idea of fireworks. Now that I've made it, I love it.
Stamps: Happy Father's Day (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: So Saffron, Riding Hood Red dsp, Basic Black
Accessories: handmade blooms from Paper Blooms, buttons, Linen thread, watercolor pencils, Basic Grey Square Silver Rhinestones, Matchbox Bigz XL die (for the label)

Remember you don't have to have any of Leah's fabulous blooms to play along. Although, I think the DT has tempted you with some amazing work. . .go check out the rest of the team's goods (their links are on my sidebar). You can find Leah's fabby blooms to buy at her Etsy shop. So glad you stopped by, and I can't wait to see what you come up with for the challenge.
