Merry Christmas--Tis the Season Challenge 18

June 15, 2014

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's!  I lost my Daddy, almost three years ago and I miss him every day!  If you are lucky enough to have your Daddy, I hope you make him feel special today!  I was truly blessed with a GREAT Daddy!  He always put his family first and did everything he could to make our lives better than his.  I thank God for him every day!

Today's card is for the Tis The Season Christmas Card Challenge.  Basic Black, Pacific Point and Rich Razzleberry are definitely not what you think of when you think of Christmas.  It was truly a challenge to make these three colors work together.  I do love these colors and I am happy with my card and find it an interesting twist on a traditional card.  I hope you enjoy it!
