Let's Cheer for the Fathers

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 596. My colors are from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 586 - Green Pool Mist. This is also for Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 380 - Polka Stripes. I dusted off a My Favorite things Stamp Set I have had for eons for this card. My window ended up a bit short and it looks like a headless man sitting in a recliner, Oh well, it is what it is. I fussy cut and paper pieced the chair, the man, the rug and the tv. I used my distressed stripes embossing folder on the recliner, I inked the polka dot background stamp with marina mist and stamped on pool party cs for wallpaper. 
Hope you like it
On the inside and envelope I stamped the sentiments in marina mist.

Happy Father's Day You Angler You

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 586 - Green Pool Mist and for dessert a Father's Day Card. Cool colors for Father's Day. I had to go with a fish theme since my DH is obsessed with fishing. This is also for Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 380 - Polka Stripes. I chose the small background stamp from Dad's Day set and inked with marina mist. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig for placement. My layout is from Monday's MOJO MONDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE # 451.
For the inside and envelope I also stamped in marina mist. I hope you like it.
