Man Card with a Charm

I had some time to "play" this afternoon  (YIPPEE!!), so I decided to enter the Simon Says "Prince Charming" Challenge. Cute name, ha? What it means is to make a man card with a charm on it, hee hee.

What I came up with is VERY different from my usual card...but it is very fitting for the recipient--My Dad. Dad and I enjoy walking in late afternoon or early evening, when it is not quite so hot and the crickets are chirping (am I losing you to Memory Lane yet?...)...so I decided to make this:

All paper is Stampin Up! The only stamped image is the tree (a stamp my friend made), and the sentiment is from SU! Lovely Labels. Everything else is done with scraping and sponging the inks (all SU!). I am no pro, that's for sure! But it is a technique that I would like to try again (hopefully with better results next time, lol.)

 Here is a closeup of the tree. I stamped this in black and then heat embossed it in clear embossing powder before I added any of the other colors.

The charm is from my stash, and it is a leaf--fitting, I thought, since both my Dad and I love Fall. Dad and I don't get to walk together very often now, since we live 1,000 miles apart. *sigh*

I appreciate your comments! I must say, I am a little nervous about giving this to my Dad since my Mom is an artist. We'll see what she has to say about it...lol.

I am entering this in the Simon Says Challenge--Prince Charming.

I hope you can make some special memories today!

It is a beautiful card. I love the scene you created, what a wonderful sunset. I think you should definitely send it to your Dad. :) Well, the ticker says I only have 6 hours left for this challenge, I don't know if I am going to make it or not. Best wishes!
