Remember peel offs?

I had a really good sort out of my craft cupboard yesterday and found about 100 sheets of forgotten peel offs which I don't think I've used for absolutely ages.  They came in just perfect today when I was making this Father's Day card because they just added that little bit more to help "lift" the card.  The black and kraft seemed a bit dull on its own, but the extra bit of gold really helped it to look better.  I always like it when I find use for some of my older crafting stuff - makes me feel better when I actually use the stuff rather than piling it up in a cupboard!

I stamped the sentiment using an alphabet set from Rubber Stampede and used a small circle punch to cut out each letter, rolling the edges in the black ink.  The paper is from Papermania - which came in the recent DoCrafts Goody Bag.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Milk Coffee challenge - Father's Day / Male card
Crafting by designs - Father's Day - anything goes
Digi stamps 4 joy - For the men in our lives
Inky impressions - Father's Day

Thanks for stopping by,
