Stampin' Up! Betsy's Blossoms for Fathers Day!

Hi everyone
Can you tell that I'm might be getting addicted to the Dynamic Duos Challenge blog and the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge ??? :)

For my card, I used the leaf stamp from Betsy's Blossoms and was inspired by these two cards by Mary Fish.....here.....and here . I like how Mary used the leaf to make a custom designer series paper in the first card....and I was really inspired by the boldness of the second card...the way Mary has used a dark colour on a lighter neutral....it is so striking! :)

I loved how well River Rock, Whisper White & Basic Black went together...I would have never guessed....that is the great thing about these challenges....the more you do, the more your colour palette expands.

Materials used:
Stamps - Betsy's Blossoms, Well Scripted (retired)
Ink - Basic Black
Cardstock - Whisper White smooth & textured, Basic Black, River Rock, River Rock Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals stack
Accessories - misc brads
Tools - Paper Cutter, Snail, Itty Bitty Punch pack, Mat Pack, Dimensionals, Corner Rounder Punch, Large Oval Punch
