Father's Mustache


 Just a fun little card for Father's Day :)  My own dad was clean shaven, but my husband is the one with the mustache.  I remember for his 30th birthday, I had a costume party in his honor to celebrate the milestone and he actually shaved off the mustache because it didn't go with his costume (he dressed up like Paul Stanley of KISS)!  Honestly, I couldn't wait until it grew back because he looked like he was turning 12! We still laugh about it now...20+ years later!

 

I created the background using a mustache embossing folder and silver card stock.  The mug is from Simon Says Stamp (What's Brewing); the mustache and glasses are from Paper Smooches (Incognito); the sentiment is Lawn Fawn's.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
