Sweet Stamps Challenge #120:Dad

Hello my dear crafty friends!
 Our weekly challenge on Sweet Stamps is FOR DAD.
Hard one for me as I realised that I don't have any masculine stamp in my stash (as I am very new to Sweet Stamps DT and I just didn't order some for men). But as always, some nature and some masculine colors can  be used and I think that my new card can be given to any Dad or man around.
I used black cardstock as my card  base and Kraft one , die cut with CLD Cardmaker's Rectangle  A2 die for my second layer and then for the third one, the stamped one.


I stamped  Floral Corner Wrap   stamp with Clear embossing ink and heat embossed it with Balck EP. Then I added Queen's Ann Wildflowers  stamp using same ink and same powder.
Now for the fun: mists all around. I used whatever I had  (all from Ranger)  in blue, green, yellow and orange and I really love the colors of my background.
The title spot was die cut with CLD Inverted Scallop   Circle  Stackers  small dies and the Kraft spot with the sentiment was die cut with CLD  Little Stackers Circles die.
I stamped YOU'RE SOMEONE SPECIAL very general sentiment over this  spot with Peapod Shades ink spot and inked the edges with Kiwi Shades  ink  spot. The last masculine touch was a half of 2 Owls die I used over the sentiment spot (those are a couple of delicious owls, but I just needed one as we only have one Dad (usually))



To keep it clean and masculine I just added a piece of twine and some small round brads over the corners.
Now is your turn: play with our weekly challenge and you can win some gorgeous prizes!
