Speedy's Friends Challenge #59

Hiya! Hope this week is going well for you. Time for another challenge at Speedy's Friends. Just in time for Father's Day. Yep , that's the challenge make a Father's Day card or project for dear old dad. A few weeks back Joanne Travis posted a gorgeous card (shirt w/tie), now I have seen them around lots of times and decided to try my hand at it. I had a hard time deciding on which way to go, so many possible ways, that I made two.
The stamp set is " African Veldt" by Mark's Finest Papers.



On this one I added this adorable charm from MFP as tie tac, I thought it was a little large for it, but went with it anyway.


The card stock for both cards are from MFP. Hope you can join in the fun and you can find info on the challenge here.
For all you dads and Granddads have a Happy Father's Day!!
Thanks for stopping by.
