Happy Belated Fathers Day

Hi Guys, 

So I have had a few scheduled blog posts for whilst I was away but I didn't get as many up as I wanted to before I left (how bad am I time just ran away from me) 

So anyway I am back from a fantastic week in Turkey, whilst we were there me and Alan celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary it was brilliant, just the two of us, spending time around the pool in 38 degree heat sipping cocktails most the day - just what the doctor ordered. 

Anyway today i have a card for you I made for fathers day. This is the card I gave to my dad. How late am I in getting this up on my blog.  OOOPs

So I used a Lili of the Valley image -  I love this image and it was perfect for my dad, we have dogs in our family (well he has three) and you will often find him sitting out in the garden with one of the dogs sat on the bench next to him, so as soon as I seen this I knew I had to use it!

I used my promarker pens to colour the image in with and chalk for the "sky" I added white liquid pearls to give some extra detail to the image. 

I used brown and green and matted and layered the papers up. I added a cloud with the word "DAD" in and a sentiment of "HAPPY FATHERS DAY" All the die cuts were cut using the cricut expression original machine. I added fake stitching around some of the letters and the cloud. 

I finished the card by adding string and card candi to it. 

I will be entering this into the following challenges:-
