WOVEN RIBBON HEART CARD FOR DAD


Today's CAS challenge at The Outlawz is R&R - Red and Ribbon, an I decided to use red ribbon to weave into a heart for Father's Day:




I added the sentiment by printing from my computer, and some pearls onto the heart.

Done!!  Not only clean and simple, but quick and easy too!

MUSIC - THE FRIDAY CHALLENGE AT THE OUTLAWZ


 I simply adored this colouring page image I found a while back, and it seemed perfect for a Father's Day card, my entry for the Friday challenge at The Outlawz today.

I coloured it using alcohol markers an a white gel pen, an then fussy cut it.

Three silver rings were added as embellishments (as 'pierings') and it was popped up on foam blocks.

The digital sentiment was printed directly onto the white base card.

Thanks for visiting today.
