Hip Hop, Daddy-O!

Happy Father's Day. . . Hip Hop Style!!!! Are you getting lots of Father's Day card inspiration!? (I can't wait to do the blog hop myself, because I need to get going on Father's Day cards as well!)
I used the June Kit of the Month for both of these cards. The first is probably a little more "fatherly" than the second, but I wanted to keep working with the fun Daisy D's paper!
I have to tell you about the ribbon on this second card. I wanted brown, and I had exactly the right color. . .but it was just too thick and too much for the card. It was just a regular old piece of grosgrain ribbon, but I cut it in half!!! Seriously - this was just a 4.25 in piece of ribbon, I trimmed off the edges, and cut it longways. In person, it made the card a little more rustic, which I liked.

And now, continue hopping to my sweet, sweet friend ***Christi***
