To My Dear Dad.................

Good morning to you all

Now you may or may not know that I am changing my job soon, so I have had lots of time recently to catch up on life and in-particularly my crafting.  This is something that I have created, get this.............. to enter a specific challenge...................oh okay you can get up now :)

I decided to follow the sketch at Sketch Saturday


I wanted to make another Father's day card

I found some lovely Papermania papers and matched them to create this little number.  I had not used this image for quiet sometime and it is one from so many years ago,  so thought I would play with it too.

So here is my creation
I turned the sketch on it's side


This is an A2 side folded card


I have used the navy blue as the base layer and contrast and layered up the strips using MS doily punched edged layers.  I added some Crafty Ribbons lace under the bottom layer and a strip of ribbon on the top one,  before adding the image and it's surround which I used my MFT pierced oval dies.  No pearls on this one as it was already starting to look very feminine oops


The image on this one has been coloured in copics

I would like to welcome my new followers and thank all of my lovely commenters for their lovely comments, I will be over to see you shortly.
