CAS Father's Day

The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays this week is to create a CAS Masculine card with designer paper.  Before you think my card is not clean and simple…………this is really just a piece of designer paper layered onto cardstock, with a couple of embellishments!  It just looks complicated!  The embellishments, with the exception of the chipboard shape, are from the same designer paper! The designer paper is from the “Awesome” paper pad by Simple Stories.  I think 6x6 paper pads might be my new love!  I previously had never even owned one!  I picked up a couple for 50% off at Archiver’s.  They are now my new best friend!  The paper pads that is, Archiver’s is a three hour drive one way for me!
