My husbands fathers day card

This is the card I gave my husband for Father's Day. I am really not loving the new river rock. I will keep trying, but until then it is sahara sand for me. I started with a sahara sand base and stamped it with my linen bg stamp in chocolate chip. The edges were sponged with chocolate chip. The designer paper layer is from spring flowers designer paper from Stampin'Up! I sponged chocolate chip on that layer too. The next layer is just plain ole chocolate chip run through my cuttlebug embossing folder. Can I just tell you how much I love my cuttlebug! The next layer is sahara sand sponged with chocolate chip and my baroque motifs swirl stamped in chocolate chip. I punched sahara sand with my square scallop punch. I stamped the motif with versamark and embossed with copper embossing powder. The center is chocolate chip cs punched with my 1/4 inch circle punch. To finish it off I sponged with guess what? More chocolate chip! I think chocolate chip is the new black! I used jute twine and copper cording to tie around the middle. 3 Purty copper brads finished it off nicely. He seemed impressed! I stamped the envelope to match. Have a great day!
