Challenges – Papertake Dads and Lads

Like many other challenge blogs, Papertake this week has challenged its readers to design and create a card that is suitable for dads and lads… in honour of Fathers Day.

I had some fun and games with colours, yellows, oranges and aquas are contrasting colours so go well together. And male cards work well with contrast as it adds a layer of boldness, even when I used pastel shades as I have done here.

I like using triple elements in cards and stripes are a great way of filling space. Once I decide who is getting this card (and why) I will add a greeting along the stripes.
