Banners & Flags

No posts in a month, then two in one day!!
The challenge on CAS-ual Fridays this week is Banners & Flags and I made this card today. It was a bit fiddly, but I love fiddly - I find it therapeutic. The papers are from Craftwork Cards, and the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted stamps (I love that font).

Father's Day

I really love making cards and scrapbooking but HATE making men's cards. I start off making something masculine looking and have to resist the urge to cover it in pink/sparkly gems/flowers! I started this card with some Hot Off The Press papers and added some leaves and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted's range of stamps and dies. I stamped grey Stazon ink onto kraft card and really liked the effect. This card is still growing on me, but I'm pretty pleased with it. It's not my usual style either so it was a bit out of my comfort zone (you know, the cards where you play about with them for ages, then have to walk away and make a cup of tea, then come back and poke it around a bit more....)

I'm entering this card for the first Clearly Besotted challenge (seeing as I sweated so much over it! Lol).
