"Yes!" was his answer....

........when I asked my DH if this card was as simple as he would like for a Father's Day card:

Happy Father's Day

To add a little more interest to it, so it wasn't too plain looking, I took a glossy photo paper and distressed it with the green ink you see. It's super glossy in real life so it looks kinda neat...like you're in the depths of a forest....the gloss doesn't show too well on the photo here.

It's been super busy here but I'm glad I had a little time to craft for fun!! Hope you have a great day!

Supplies:
Hero Arts:
K5314 - Silhouette Fern.
AF142 - HA Soft Green Shadow Ink.
AF182 - Grass chalk ink.
PS602 - Grass layering papers.
CL222 - Birthday Expressions.
CH215 - Neutral Mixed Accents.

Other:
Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
High Gloss Photo Paper.
