Father's Day!

Just had to share my latest card with you! 

It's for my lovely Dad for Father's Day!
I used Gina Giraffe which was a freebie from Digi's With Attitude! this month!

I do so enjoy colouring up these little digi's!
My card it very simple but I like it &  hope you do too!
The image was coloured with promarkers & then I edged with a promarker after trimming to shape!
I used a sheet of coloured card, scored it at A4 half fold & made it a square as the base for my easel card! 

I dry embossed a line down either side of the front, where the image was going to be.
I did the same with a couple of lines across the bottom at the front.

I made the topper by using a piece of the same coloured card for the easel section then matted a layer of tissue & a couple of tissue squares, then topped with the image.
 I added a computer generated sentiment to the front too! 
The stop is again the card, tissue & a computed generated sentiment. I used foam tape to attach the sentiments for dimension. 
I finally added a ruffle of ribbon!
Thanks for stopping by!
