Just For You Dad

Hey, decided i'd better make dad's Fathers Day card before it arrives :) Tehe he will love it!
I printed my Fizzy Moon, All About Him image and coloured him using my new promarkers!! I then cut him into a book shape and inked round the edge with Brilliance Sky Blue ink. I inked the edge of my card blank with darker blue ink and covered it with blue checked paper, overlapping the folded edge. I edged my image with dark blue and attatched this on a diagonal. I used blue ribbon across the bottom of the card with a pale blue bow and attatched blue buttons to the corners of the image and card. I embossed a swirly arrow with cosmic shimmer light and dark blue embossing powders and attatched this to the top lefthand corner of the image. To finish, I raised the two blue sentiments 'Just for you dad' and 'When I grow up I want to be just like you' on the card. Quick but lovely :)
