Pear Tree Designs Challenge # 4 - 'Father's Day'

Good morning, here is my DT card (slightly late) for Pear Tree Designs . The Theme being 'Father's Day'. Even though my dear old Dad is no longer with me, I always make a card each year for him, this image is just right, as he was an avid fisherman!

We have been given this image by our regular monthly sponsor 'One Stop Card Crafts', who are offering a great prize of 'Men's Cardmaking Kit' worth £10.00, so make up you card and pop on over to the main blog and leave us your link, so that we can come visit you!

Here is what I used to make my card, I used a Momento 'Rich Cocoa' Inkpad to ink the chipboard letters, they dried such a great colour!

My Card Recipe:

Brown & Khaki Green Bazzill Cardstock
Basic Grey Papers
Labels 9 Nestibility Die
Chipboard Letters
Craftwork Cards Sentiment
SU Scallop & Oval Punches
Buttons & Thread from stash
Coloured in with Promarkers

Had better go tackle the large ironing pile, have a lovely afternoon!
