This is a Father's Day card my son asked me to make for his dad, I hope he likes it. I was following the great sketch but when it came to putting the sentiment on, it didn't look right so I have moved it across, hope that's ok. I didn't think it appropriate to put lace on it, but there is a piece of ribbon. I punched the corners of the backing papers to add a bit of interest. I finished it with one of my favourite quotes. Nearly forgot, the image is one of the new stamps from LOTV which I have coloured with Promarkers. Isn't he lovely, he looks so thoughtful and I just love these papers and think they go so well with the stamped image. Hope you like this one, sorry about the dark photo.
