An Apple A Day...

Thursday, 20 June 2013

Hi everyone!

A wee late one from me, and for a change not DT related!  But I thought I'd better post my Father's Day card before it gets too far past it!

Here it is:

A fairly simple sort of a card, but there's something about it that I like, and I don't say that very often about my own cards!  Maybe it's the simplicity of it?

The images are by Birdie Brown and these ones were actually freebies!  I coloured them with the following copics: Bear; E39,37,35. Tree; E47,44,43. Apples; R39,37,29. Grass; G99,YG97,95,E49,31. Sky; B000,0000,C1,0. And highlighted with some white acrylic paint.

 The papers are Country Drive by Echo Park.  The sentiment was computer generated in power point - I worked out what size my image was and created the wording to go around it.  The font is Lainie Day.  I finished it off by adding some doodled lines and some red ribbon and pearls from my stash.

The inside is simple to match the front, with a Wild Rose Studio sentiment.

So that's my card for my lovely daddy!  He has got a couple of apple trees but it's out of season at the moment, I just liked the picture!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
