Non-traditional Father's Day Colors

Two posts in one day!  I had to get this next one up so I didn't miss another challenge deadline.  I used two challenges for inspiration for this card, and I already missed one of the deadlines (even though I made the card on Tue... darn procrastination).

I used the awesome colors at The Paper Players this week, as well as the fun sketch at Stamping 411.  
My father loves the color green, and so do I, so some variation of it is on nearly every card I make for him.  And he actually had a green bike with pink handle bars when I was a kid, so I'm thinking he can handle a few splashes of Melon Mambo on his Father's Day card.  So here's what I put in the mail for him this week (apologies for the poor picture quality):
Not a traditional masculine card, but I think it is perfect for him (even though he is a traditional, masculine man, does that make sense? hahaha...)  

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

  1. How cool that your dad had a green and pink bike! This card will be perfect for him. I love the pop of green chevron paper in the background! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players!

  2. I absolutely love how the embossed panel looks on top of the chevron paper! This is awesome!
