Dad's Turn!

 I'm sure these are a bit harder, you can't bling & pretty these cards up , so I always like to throw in the distressing and distress inks.  Makes them more manly right? Messy? Rough? LOL! 
 This weeks challenge at Isabellas Sketchbook is to make a card honouring fathers. Our fathers day in NZ isn't till September but it never hurts to be prepared!
 I've used Kaisercraft Rewind paper, buzz & bloom chipboard lettering, SU cardstock, EK success border punch and some twine from my stash. This cute digi image from Isabella's Sketchbook is coloured with copics. 
 I'm entering this in Totally Gorjuss- one for the boys
   and Stamptacular Sunday- A tribute to fathers
          Cupcake Craft - One for the boys
         Totally Stampalicious- Celebrate Dads
         Magical Crafts- Fathers day
        Crafty cardmakers- cards for men
         Incy Wincy- One for the guys
         Creative Inspirations- One for the boys

Loving the papers and your colouring is fab! I actually LIKE making guy cards once in a while, it's a good purging process for embellishment addiction!

Oh this is brilliant and I love the idea of distressing I always find it hard not to add bling that is why I find male cards so hard but you have made it look easy :D
