Happy Tuesday! It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC121)!  Silke is the challenge host this week.  Silke is challenging us to create a Father's Day card.   We would love to see what you create!  

For my card I am using Flourishes Antique Map, Beach Life, and A Guiding Light stamp sets.   I am using Flourishes Classic ivory cardstock.  My bottom layer is expresso and I textured it with a sizzix plate.  I paper pierced the edges with the sewing machine without thread, and I distressed the edges with a ranger distressing tool.   I stamped the antique map and sponged the sides with Ranger vintage photo ink. I distressed the edges.   I wrapped the mapped panel with the expresso textured section behind the map several times with ivory twine and topped with sentiment tag and button.  The palm tree image was inked with Memento cocoa and ripe avocado inks.  I sponged the edges of this panel with vintage photo ink as well.  I backed it with expresso cardstock and foam dots to make it pop a bit.  I added a few gold pearls to mimic some coconuts and to add some detailing in the corners.  I lightly stamped a script font over the main image with some Ranger antique linen and touches of the map panel.  For the most part, I kept my Father's Day card pretty simple.
