Isabella's Challenge - Honouring Fathers

You'll just have to believe me when I say this card is actually nice IRL, it did NOT photograph well!! Of the gazillion shots I took that's the LEAST blurry!!

I know it seems a funny choice of image but my Dad LOVES to shop, especially when I send him a little gift dosh, lol.

I coloured Isabella's cute doggie image with copics and layered DCWV Linen Closet papers on hessian fbric which I frayed and cut deliberately a bit uneven to have more natural feel. Wooden buttons and rick-rack twill are from my stash.

I stuck Maya Road kraft envelope inside to put the money or gift card in.

Don't forget to head over to Isabella's Challenges blog to see all the gorgeousness the DT has come up with!

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:
Cupcake Craft - One For The Boys
Totally Gorjuss - For The Boys
Totally Paprcrafts - Animal Magic
Stamptacular - A Tribute To Fathers
Rosie D - Something Blue

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

What a cute card for your father! I love all the texture, very manly, and you made the little pup come to life. I had a problem with the camera lens last week and it can drive you crazy. Go glad you won!

Oh, how fun Annika! Love the sweet image of course, and the DP and textured fabric background is amazing (and helps lean the card toward a more masculine feel!). :)

Awe I love your card. I think it's a great fathers day card. Were dog people so it would fit perfect for any dad in our family.

I get so frustrated with blurry pictures too. I try changeing the settings until I find one where it's not blurry anymore..after the umptenth shot I'll get a decent one.
