Verve Release Sketch

Last night I was wandering around SCS and stumbled upon a great sketch in the Verve forum. Bonus, there is a chance to win a prize and a guest designer for the next release!!! Thanks so much Julee for the chance for both opportunities!!!!
I was sitting in my stamping area thinking about what to do, I decided to use my Father Figure set, I love this set, so versatile for man card!!! I found the perfect dp, Basic Grey Blush!! I thought it would be neat to use the panel with the dp. I stamped the sentiment and then centered my Nestabilites Small Label, ran through my Cuttlebug to only emboss, I thought it helps the sentiment stand out a bit more. I sewed my buttons on with DMC embossing floss, the are seemed a little blank so I paper pierced around the edges and hand sewed the stitches. This card was so much fun to make, I was able to incorporate my 2 very favorite hobbies!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
