A card for my Step Dad.


Just a quick post tonight as I'm pretty shattered after being at my M.E group.  I'd like to say a huge Thank you to Jules for giving me a shout out on her blog. She spread the word on her blog about my blog candy.  She's a very talented crafter and a great friend.
I made this card for my Step Dad's birthday which is on Friday.
I used a My Craft Studio Cd rom for the image, the papers and the sentiment was typed.I used distress inks to do some blending and to make it look aged and added some string.I'm really pleased with how it turned out. It's really different for me.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafts 4 Eternity challenge - colour-recipe - chocolate and cream.
Die cut dreams challenge 93 dawns recipe-3 shapes, 2 colours, 1 ribbon (bow or other)
3 shapes - square image, roughly shaped map paper and a rectangle sentiment,
2 colours - brown and cream,
Crafty catz weekly challenge 90 - vintage look

Hope you've had a great day.

Love Debs x
