A Dutch Father's Day!!

I was not very certain on today's challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. It was to make a card with an international flair. I was stumped on what to do..Then I thought about it and since Father's Day is Sunday I thought I would do a card from my stepson to his dad. My stepson (who lives with us) spent his first 8 years of life in the Netherlands. My stepdaughter lives there with her mom. My husband lived in The Netherlands and in Germany for over 10 years. So this challenge worked out perfect he got a card that says "Happy Father's Day" in Dutch. He will be so touched by it.. So this is for challenge LSC225. Hope you guys like it and thanks for stopping by and visiting. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!

Great job! Darling image!! Great Dutch card!! My parents immigrated from Holland when they were in their teens so I have a lot of Dutch traditions that we follow.

Have a great weekend!!

Nice, Crystal!! I love your color combination. You always have such good color choices. I am not as daring when it comes to colors.

I think I should check the challenges you join because they all seem so awesome. This particular one is perfect for me because I have a set of Japanese and Asian dolls.
