Try Stampin on Tuesday Challenge #509



Today's card was inspired by a sketch challenge ( #tsot509 ) from the Try Stampin on Tuesday team and a special request from a friend to make a "Superman" Father's Day card. I don't know about you but I don't have any Superman stamps!!  So...I found a black and white image that I copied on red and yellow paper, then I cut and pieced it together to create my focal image!  My friend loved it and I hope the recipient will too!

Verse of the Day:

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.
