Father of the Year & Wedding

Happy Wednesday!

Even though I have all my Father's Day cards finished and mailed out, I'm still feeling that pull to make more :)  So I worked up a simple one today...and I'll just save it till next year!
I followed the sketch at Sentimental Sundays for this card.  Like I said, it's simple :)
The adorable image is from Pollycraft Designs called Cuthbert Car.  I think of my dad when I see this image...he's a self-employed mechanic.  I remember when he took a leap of faith and started his business.  He was an instant success and everyone loves him!

I printed off the sentiment and flagged the ends.  Then punched out some stars and added them to the staggered flags at the top, along with adding some red stickles so they sparkled.

Wow...lots of Father's Day challenges :)

My next card is:
this beautiful bride/wedding card!  I loved putting this together!  I meant to put a sentiment on the front, but it looked so good without it :)
I used "Bride" from Saturated Canary...I'll be honest, this is my second version of her...my first attempt at coloring her in turned out awful!  She looked like she had a very very bad spray on tan! Lol...
So I tried again :)

I added some silver glitter accents to her dress...I meant for it to be more of a shimmer and not stand out quite so much but it didn't work out that way.
I cut the frame with my Lacy Labels cartridge and embossed the white with the D'vine Swirls folder.  The paper is from Dracula Cat on Etsy.  I bought it for some birthday invites I did a few months ago and just love this paper!  Every time I look at it, I think wedding...so I finally made a wedding card with it!

I cut out the corner details with my cricut, as well as the flower and added some white paint and tiny beads to the center!
This card is entered in the following challenges:
