Gallery Idol Top 20!!!

I am so excited that I made the Gallery Idol Top 20!!  I am competing with some super talented and sweet ladies and I feel so honored to be among them.  So for the second round of this competition the theme is Defining Dad!  Here is my card.
 
I took my inspiration from both my Father and my Husband, they both LOVE their ipads!  The card itself was pretty simple to make but for some reason took me forever:)  I cut a panel of black cardstock and used my crop-a-dile to punch a hole out of the top and backed that with vellum then another circle of  black cardstock to create the camera you find at the top of an ipad.  I took a standard card base and adhered the black cardstock panel to it and then rounded all the corners.  I cut a white panel to represent the screen and stamped the sentiment at the bottom and adhered it to the card.  I stamped and heat embossed a square on a piece of black cardstock and punched it out with a small circle punch to create the Home button on the ipad.  Then came apps!!  I didn't want to cover it with apps but I did want a few important ones so I chose the message app and the date app (using Fathers Day as the date).  The apps were easy to make I just cut a few 1" squares and rounded the corners.  I cut a mini talk bubble using my Silhouette and stamped the number 1 and punched it out using a small hole punch.  I really love this card and plan on actually sending it to my father this year!  Thanks so much for stopping by and please go VOTE HERE!!  I need your help to make it to the next round!:)
