My Hero

Now for my second card today, another Father's Day card.  For this one I used an photo I took in Thailand for the scenery behind the digi, added a triple layered border and the buttons in green just to carry the colour of the wee girls dress over.  The border layers were coloured with Promarkers to tie in nicely with the photo image used.  I love the matching red hair of father and daughter against the more subdued browns of the card.  The buttons were tied with raffia which I thought was rather appropriate with all the trees around.  The digi and the sentiment are both from Digi Darla, 'On Top Of The World' and 'For Dad My First Hero'.

  • White Linen card from Craft Creations
  • Digi - On Top Of The World and sentiment 'For Dad, my First Hero' both from Digi Darla
  • Dies - Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 4pk - Borders by Rachael Bright
  • Promarkers
  • Backing paper, scenery photo, buttons and raffia from my stash.
