Father's Day is almost here..

Have you all made your dad a Father's Day Card yet?

I was racking my ickle brain as to what to put on my dad's card but then, whilst glancing at the craft mags when in Tesco shopping a few weeks back (does anyone else do that?) I noticed that in (now last) issue of Paper Craft Inspirations Mag that they have a website where you can download templates....for FREE! Always loving a freebie I logged on and found a paintbrush card template - perfect for my dad's card!
The stripy part of the card is from a gift bag (see, I can do recycling hehe). I inked up the bottom of the card with a bluey/turquoise coloured inkpad to make it look used.
I am unsure as to whether I should add any more detail or embellishments as don't want to overdo it but feel it lacks just a little something or other..
Card:- coredinations chocolate box cardstock, white paper, stripy and blue paper from stash
Image:-brush template downloaded from papercraftinspirations website
Sentiment:- Impression Obsession word stamp set
Inks:- black whispers , papermania turquoise ink
Miscell:- rope from recycled gift bag,
Tools:- crop-a-dile, scissors, guilotine, sticky strip runner
I hope you've all had a good weekend. I have a very busy week ahead as starting new job in London (the joy of 12hour days is not very attractive, but hey, it's a job for now).
Bye for now xxx
