A quick card

Well, relatively so, I am a painfully slow crafter.

The image of Dad dancing with a baby girl (Phindy, of course), is a very usual sight in our house.
My husband is a brilliant father and the most caring, loving person you could imagine.

So there's no particular reason for this card, I just wanted to tell him how much I appreciate him. So I made this card for our little daughter to give him. :)

The card is very simple, just MME papers, some card candy, letter stickers and felt star from MM and a rub-on from 7 Gypsies.
The image itself is coloured with Copics, cut out with Nesties labels and sponged with Distress inks (Antique linen and Frayed Burlap)


The sketch is from Moving Along With The Times.

Don't forget to enter Phindy's Challenge - it's Use Favorite Phindy Image this time!
I would like to enter following challenges:

Hugs
Annika
