Happy Father’s Day – by Heidi Blankenship

Heidi created a Father’s Day card to share with us today. I love the woodsy feel to this card. Heidi did an ink blended background combined with a woodgrain stencil for that rich, woodsy look. She then added a leafy ribbon which is absolutely the perfect accent to this card. Take a look:

What a great card for DAD!!!

Note that Heidi combined two colors of the leafy ribbon along the bottom.

Heidi provides a full tutorial on that stunning background on her blog here.
