my D-A-D-A!!!

Hello, pretty!!! How are you? Finally, its Saturday & tomorrow is Father's day. I have a simple card to share today. The picture that I used was a hallmark card that I saw in a bookstore yesterday. Since i do not have any masculine image/stamps, I've  decided to bought it & cut the picture and the message inside..

A white card for the base. Papers, Buttons, brown ribbon (bow) are from All About Scrapbooking. Brown twine is from wrap 'em up. I stamped the word DADA because my youngest son used to call his father "dada". Distressed the edges. And a hand stitch around it.

I hope you like my card.. Thank you so much  for leaving a  sweet comments and for continue inspiring me to learn. Happy weekend!!!
