I've just finished my Fathers Day card and decided to enter it into Challenge 95 - Extra Special The remit is for you to make a card for someone special or for a special occasion, and as I had just finished the card I decided that my Dad was someone special so here is my card. The image is a Just Jim image from Digistamp Boutique and has been coloured with copics. I wanted the chair to look like leather, not quite sure that I've got it looking that way but maybe next time, because they do say practice makes perfect! Anyway Ive used taupe coordinations card stock and a freebie download blue paper called Let it Snow. Sorry but I can't remember where I donwnoaded it from but if anyone recognises it will you let me know so I can give credit. I've added some rustic looking brads and a piece of garden twine that I came across in hubby's work box. The stars are die cuts and I've raised some of the smaller ones on foam pads to give a bit of height. I've used rub on sentiments but I don't really like using these very much. Seems to be so much effort for not much show if you know what I mean.
