Father's Day for My Dad!

My dad was an amateur astronomer.  He actually built his own observatory where he had a really cool telescope with a roof that slid off with a garage door opener!

When I saw this paper from CTMH, I knew I wanted to do something with it for Dad......what better than a Father's Day card?

  3. I loved reading the story of your dad's observatory and the stars fit right in! And that's a great use of scraps. Thanks for playing at H2H! -- Cynthia

  4. Great card! I still have to make my dads card.... I never know what to do because he doesn't wear ties, he doesn't hunt or he gets so many golf cards! Something like this would be perfect...

  5. Lovely card, Katrina! Great use of various embellishments - Fab textures and colours.
    hugs, Asha
