PPC #61 and Whimsical Wednesday #10

THIS CARD WON AS A RUNNER-UP AT PPC!!!!  WHOOOO HOOOOO!!
Good day bloggers!  I am leaving to go out of town this weekend for my nephews high school graduation!  So I wanted to try and get a couple of challenges in while trying to pack.  This card is for my Dad for Fathers Day, so it worked out perfect that this weeks challenge over at http://whimsicalwednesdays.blogspot.com/ is to make something for "Father's Day".  It is also for http://www.ppc-challenges.blogspot.com/ for the use of colors, which are "SU! cajun craze, always artichoke and certainly celery."  I used the scalloped oval punch on the front to highlight the sentiment of "Happy Father's Day".  The ribbon is always artichoke 1/4" grosgrain, topped off with mini copper colored brads.  I hand cut out the little spatula and glued it to the little insert that slides out to read, "King of the Grill" cause that is the SU! stamp set that it came from.
My Dad loves two things, #1 to eat at buffet resturants and #2 Wood Grill Resturant, so I thought it best to just slide him in a gift card to go eat there!

Wowzers, this is just great! I love the shape of the card and the fact that it is a gift card holder. It is so clever. Your paper is a great choice too.The special touches of the ribbon & the brad to finish off the look of an apron is just fantastic. Thanks for playing along with us at Whimsical Wednesday.
