Fathers Day Card

Hi everyone.

What a bloomin' cold and windy day it is here in the east of England.  What happened to summer????

So I'm indoors today, which means I've been able to get on with my fathers day card for my dear daddy.  I love him to bits, and make him a special card every year.  It's a challenge coming up with something different every time though.  Like most cardmakers out there I find it difficult making mens cards.  All I knew was I didn't want a cutesy image.  So I trawled through my stamps and came up with something that I liked.
I chose blue and green as I think they always look good for male cards.  Although I chose flowers for the main image, I don't think it's too feminine.  At least I hope my Dad doesn't think it is.  The stamps are by Stampin' Up! and Hero Arts.  The patterned paper is from K & Co and the cardstock and inks from Stampin' Up! again. 

Here's a closer shot of the stamped details.  You may not be able to see I added the tinest whisps of glitter to the flowers.  But you can see the dewdrops I added to the edge of the circle. 

I even decorated the inside of this one.  I wrote my (private) message along curvy pencil lines, rubbing them out carefully afterwards.  I love the finished card, hope you like it too.

Take care.
