Fathers....

Hi, it's Susan again, hope you are all enjoying the weather!!

It's nice to make a man's card every so often, gets you out of your comfort zone!

For this card I used a great sketch from Sketch Saturday, I slightly twisted it around but still loved the effect.

The backing papers are from Nitwits and Daisyd's, all the edges were distressed. I used our Ultimate Pro to make the scalloped edges as I wanted them to have an embossed edge. The solid blue card behind the image I embossed using an embossing folder from cuttlebug.

The rik-rak ribbon is from our local market.



This image is adorable and comes from Pollycraft he is called Cuthbert!

I coloured the image in using Pro-Markers, and used inks to age the surrounding edges, before distressing them to match the main backing papers.




The quote I made myself on the computer, I inked the background to match the card colours and then distressed the edges.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan
