For my Father...

Hero Arts have just had "Man Week" on their blog, so I decided to create a (rather overdue) thank you card for my dad for his role in my awesome wedding.  He gave the best speech I've ever heard, and walked me down the aisle brilliantly.  Thanks dad :)
I chose kraft and green as nice masculine colours, and used this fab Hero Arts digital image as the main focus.  These Vintage Lifestyle images are perfect for masculine cards.
Digital Thank You Card - Manweek
Supplies: Image - Hero Arts; Sentiment - computer generated (font - Zapfino); PP - Bo Bunny; Distress ink - Ranger (Tea Dye); kraft paper; machine stitching.

The inside reads... 'The Father of the Bride'.  I am loving distressing at the moment.
P.S.  Only 300 more visitors till my big giveaway!!!

Lucy, I just found your blog last week and LOVE it! I've been building my collection of stamps recently and you inspire me with new card ideas. Where did you find the Hero Arts wedding cake stamp? Love the card, but can't find the stamp! - Elaine
