My Craft Spot Challenge - King of the Grill (Honoring our Dads)

If you are looking for my Growing in Unity Post - click HERE - or just scroll down to the last post!

Good morning! It's Monday, which means its time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot! The challenge is King of the Grill - any card to honor Dad - and it's my week to share some inspiration with you! Here is what I created:
I actually had something entirely different planned using my Cricut, and layed out and ready, but my Gypsy decided to stop working on me right before I could cut it! So sad! So, I pulled out my Silhouette machine instead to make this! I used a file from the Sihouette Store (click HERE for the link to the file) - and re-sized the center a little to fit what I wanted.
I used some papers from Authentique - love the Americana flavor they have - and added a Peachy Keen face using the Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment. 
The bow is made with Airmail Divine Twine from my Crafts Sot, and I used it to hand the sentiments from Tiny Tag Greetings. One fun trick I have learned with tags - after attaching them with the twine, I added one small piece of foam adhesive to the back. It keeps them in place, but leaves them 3 dimensional!  
Added a PTI button to the center of the bow - then pop-dotted the entire award from the background for a bit of dimension. 
Also inked all the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink. 
So glad you stopped by today!!! Make sure and head over to My Craft Spot to link up your own creations for a chance to win this weeks prize! Looking forward to seeing your creations!
