My hubby is just so darn cute. We recently went shopping for some new "work" shirts for him (his office is pretty casual), and he insisted we get Hawaiian style ones. He had a few already, but they were getting ratty from repeated wear. So, since they were on sale, we got 5 new Hawaiian shirts. He was so excited come Monday. He told me that he now had enough to wear one each day of the week! LOL...

Sooo, as I sat down to make him a Father's Day card, this seemed appropriate! :) I was inspired to add the lei after seeing a similar card on the CTMH bulletin boards. I'm sorry to whoever was the original designer -because I can't remember who you are! I'd love to give you credit though.

All supplies are CTMH - paper is from Moondoggie, stamps are Extreme Happiness, and I used Sorbet, Tulip, and Desert Sand inks. I used hemp, chocolate bigger brads, and 3d foam for embellishments. I attached the shirt to a 4x4 card base. For the shirt, my paper started at 8"x12" and then I used the pattern featured on my Classy Crafts video from last year:
