Can't see the wood for the trees - Corrosive Challenge #15 & Stampin' for the Weekend #2

Janet's Corrosive Challenge this week is to make a card for Father's Day. Unless I rename this post "Look away now Dad" I can't post my Father's Day card, Dad is a regular reader of my blog :). So here's a card I've made for my Father-in-law as he isn't online, so won't see this card ahead of time!

I've used a free Digi-image from MyGrafico, a great site that has plenty of freebies as well as lots of items included in their sale. It's well worth checking out what they have. As I've used a digi-image, I've also entered my card for Stampin' for the Weekend's second challenge, to use a digi-image. The sentiment is computer generated, the background paper from Stamp Attic and the little buterfly is cut with a punch, I found it on my desk and decided to add it to the card :). Oh, I've used Distress Ink (tea dye) around the edges of the paper.


  1. This is brilliant what a fun idea! Perfect for fathersday. I like the trees will have to go and hunt them out and the sentiment is brilliant.
    Thank you for joining us at stampin for the week end and good luck.
