Happy Fathers Day with Some Odd Girl

Yup I know Father's Day is over, I am late with a couple of cards. I always have good intentions!!  I started early, even ordered 2 stamps.  One from LOTV and one from Some Odd Girl.  You know what always cracks me up is that people that do not craft actually think you save money by making cards instead of buying.  Yup, you are laughing with me aren't you?  Anyways, the challenge over at Some Odd Girl this week is to use Kraft or white and only 2 pops of color.  I hope my card qualifies.  I used Tobie and his Puppy. I really tried to color the puppy Kraft like, but needed to not get it too close to the color of his hair/face/other browns!!!  So my pops of color are denim blue and lime green.
Ok, do you see it?  If you saw my Monday post then you know I just got Copic Certified,  Yup, do you see that new little blinkie up on the right there?  Anyways, Maryanne Walker was my instructor and she shared about depth in the shading and shadowing.  What do you think about his face?  Shaded or playing in a mud puddle? LOL!!! 
I used a cuttlebug embossing folder, some ribbon stash that I stapled on.  Yup, if you are gonna add ribbon to a Man Card, staple it!!  The sentiment is from LOTV.  The paper is both Kraft and My Mind's Eye and some denim stash.  I did some sloppy stitching on the card.  Cuz again, it is a Man Card!!
And of course the inside.
Super simple, denim blue CTMH ink on denim blue cardstock!

And some Challenges:
Crafts and Me has Stitches.
My mums Craft shop is for the boys.
Tuesday throwdown is to create a masculine card.

Thanks as always for stopping by.  Would love to share a cup of coffee with you some time!!

This card is too adorable Brenda! I too always have great intentions...I just finished my fil's father's day card today. Good thing we're not seeing him till tomorrow lol. I adore the color scheme that you went with...with the craft paper that lime green and denim blue really do pop. As to his face...I think it's a combination of both...shading and mud lol
