First Father's Day Make

Sooo, sleep is somewhat evading me tonight, despite the fact that I am ridiculously tired - too much on the mind.  So I decided that the best thing to do was get up and make a start on my father's day cards, which is in approximately 4 weeks I believe.

And here is my first creation (sorry for the wonky photo - it is late):

This is made using a LOTV art pad image from the Vintage Boys Art Pad.

I layered this onto some brown paper and added brown faux stitching with a fine liner pen.  I then layered up three strips of paper, which all come from a Wellington paper pack.  I attached this on the vertical centre of a large 8x8 card blank.  I added faux stitching to this also, and then attached the image panel over the top, as central is I could get it.

I then die-cut letters to spell 'relax' from some scraps of kraft card.  I added faux stitching to this also and attached these to the top left of the image panel

Finally, I stamped a sentiment in the opposite corner using brushed corduroy distress ink and an LOTV sentiment stamp, and then added little faux cross stitch to each corner of the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
