FATHERS DAY DUAL PURPOSE CARD

Todays card actually fufills two purposes. One~ it is a fathers day card for the best dad in the world~ MINE!!
He is so awesome, and such an inspiration to whomever he meets. He will be turning 83 in less than 2 months, and worked full time up until a little more than a year ago. He is sweet, kind, generous and caring. I love him to pieces, so Dad~ this is for you.
Secondly, this card was made for the Stamps and Smiles sketch challenge #20, which can be found on The Fresh Batch blog. I had alot of fun making last weeks, so I thought I would try it again. Sketches are great because they can get the creative juices flowing almost instantly.
My papers are by Kaleidescope, ink is Mementos Tuxedo Black, and the ribbon is from Michaels $1.00 bin.
The horse stamp is from Serendipity Stamps. Its one of the nicest horse stamps I have seen. The sentiment is from Verves newest Fathers Day release. Shapes have been cut with Nesties.

Many thanks for stopping by. I hope your enjoyed seeing my entry for this weeks sketch challenge!
