Let's Hear It For The Boys!

Good Morning Bloggers!
Today see's the start of this weeks brand new challenge at 
This weeks theme chosen by little old me is
With Father's Day fast approaching here in the UK, we'd like to see
your creations to celebrate either
Father's Day Or A Special Man In Your Life!
Easy Peasy huh??? We'll see you over there!!!

My card is a Father's Day Card.
The Image & Papers are both from The Crafty Pad Designs
One For The Boys Digital Backing Papers.
The base card is A5, made by scoring & folding an A4 sheet of cardstock.
I played about with the layout, adding lots of layers. 

The image was coloured with  a combination of
Promarkers & Flexmarkers. I only recently began using 
Flexmarkers & I'm liking them a lot!
Think I have to get me some more! lol

The sentiment, is one of the two that come with the image.
(The other is a Happy Birthday sentiment.)
I cut it out with an inverted scallop nestie then matted onto a 
scalloped circle of cardstock.
I popped it on some foam pads for dimension then
added a ribbon bow & a little saw charm.
to finish off embellishing my card I added some silver Card Candi.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my creation!

projects to inspire you!
