Father's Day

Hi all

I am back today to remind you of the current



which is 

Anything Masculine 


and is hosted by little old me :)

So here is what I created but don't forget to hop on over and see what else those fabulous design team members and our guests have made to inspire you

I made a Father's Day Card
The base layer and contrast on this one is a dark chocolate brown and some lovely turquoise papers for the contrast.  I have used those lovely nesties to cut out the image and frame it, but did this at an angle to create the diamond shape.  I added those little corners for detail along with lots of those scrummy embellishments from the Hobby House.  (Link is in my sidebar)  The ribbon, the pearl medallion and the little and larger pearls on a scallop card blank from the shop too.

Now the image coloured as always in copics
 
As always I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for their inspiring comments, which encourage me and allow me to hop over in return to see their gorgeous work and welcome my new followers.

I would like to enter the following challenges
Allsorts - Dies
Crafty Calendar - Animal Antics
My Time to Craft - Beary Nice
Open Minded - Animal Antics
Word Play - Anything Goes
Hugs
Kate
