Happy Father's Day

Good morning to you all

Wow what a lovely day it was yesterday, hope you all had some of that yellow stuff like we did.  However on Saturday with all that wet stuff, I had a chance to play, so made this little number to add to my Father's Day card collection.

The base layer and contrast is a deep green, I used some papers that I got from Grimsby Crafts and then one of the images from the Hobby House Art Colouring Book Elisabeth Bell - Summer Daze.  The ribbon and rhinestones are from the Hobby House also and the sentiment one of the best Father's Day ones and I love this set is by Wild Rose Studio.

Here is the image coloured in copics, oh and just wanted to say thank you to Vicky my WRS DT buddie for guiding me in the direction of pierced die.
Love how it frames the image with all those tiny stitch marks. I got mine from My Mum's Craft Shop as my normal shop was out of stock.

Anyway a quick hello to my new followers, an apology for my MIA with my comments to all my lovely visitors as I have not managed to get back to visit you all over the last few days, but normal service will resume now :)

I would like to enter this one into the following challenges
QKR - Fathers Day
A Little Bit Crafty - child's play
Bearly Mine - One for the Boys
DiesRUs - Father's Day
CMC - Anything Goes
Simon Wednesday - Father's Day
Hugs Kate

Dies that pierce are on my wish list too. I agree with you, they make a great, subtle frame around the image. What a great spot you picked for the sentiment, it looks great placed on that bow!
