Happy Father's Day

Good morning crafters!

How are you all today?  Most of you will know that it is Father's Day today and have probably entered a few of the many masculine themed challenges on the blogs this week.  Anyway, i thought i would share the card that i made for my special Dad.  It is actually his card and present! I made up a voucher and attached it to one of the middle panels.  The easiest present to post!   I will not be with him when he opens it unfortunately as i live thousands of miles away so i hope he will like it.

Card base & matting: Ivory & brown cardstock
Patterned Papers: Echo Park This & That & We R Memory Keepers Cotton Tail paper pack
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Heart Circles
Punches: Round and scalloped
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress ink - walnut stain
Adhesive: Glue stick, double sided tape & dimensionals
Buttons & brads
