365 Cards - Day 57 and Colour Create #13

Sunday's challenge on 365 Cards was to create a card using this sketch...
...and I finally got to use some of the beautiful Basic Grey Marrakech Glazed brads I won a few weeks ago on 365 Cards here
Here is my card

This card also fits the bill at Colour Create this week as their theme is Orange, green and Brown with the added option of making a card for a Man, well my card is for fathers day.
I cut a layer of the Caramel and Brown paper just slightly smaller than the 5" x 5" card base, this was mounted onto a square of Bazzill then adhered to the card. I cut the Green paper to 3" x 3" and mounted this onto another square of bazzill, this was added using 3d pads to give it some depth. The ribbon was pleated both ends and fastened using two of the brads and added to the centre of the card. I cut the word 'DAD' from the marigold paper using my Cricut and cut them in the bazzill as a blackout shadow then adhered the two together before centering them down the card. The scalloped pieces sit under the edge of the middle mat and I stuck 3 Jewels onto each side.
Papers - Background - PM Simply Elegant
- Letters - Basic grey Marigold
Card - Bazzill Java
Brads - Basic grey
Jewels from my stash
Ribbon from my stash
Hope you like it !
