Stamp With Us sketch challenge

Yay Happy Sunday and a sketch!!! OO I love a sketch cos it makes my life easier! So here is the sketch for the Stamp with Us challenge this week!!!
I am back to my masculine cards this week and I know straight away what I wanted to do and I must say I am SOOooooo pleased with this card, I just hope my husband appreciates it!!!!! This card is A5 in size as I couldnt fit everything on that I wanted to on a normal square one that I usually do!!!
The colour combo is Tempting Turquoise, Green Galire, Gable Green. The stamp set is of course All in the Family, coloured in with my markers. The DAD lettering is stamped with the Schoolbook Serif alphabet which I use loads!

I took a bit longer with this card and inked around all the edges of the scallop circles and the stars, I think it makes such a difference and makes them stand out more.
I cheated a bit and used Certainly Celery ribbon which is quite a good match for the Gable Green and I have added a couple of buttons to the stars and wound some tiny strips of paper through them.

Looking forward to seeing all the other creations.
