To a Special Dad on Father's Day

Here is a card I have made using my new Crafter's Companion Camden Town Male CD.  I have used one of the toppers as I wanted the whole image and not one with the sentiment.  I have used a backing paper and notepaper for the insert (as I hate to see inserts with a totally white "dead side").   The first time round I printed I hadn't changed the page orientation so I had the verse the right way up and the bus upside down!!!  

I love the grungy colours of the paperwork and image and made it a bit more grungy by using Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink through a metal effect mask and also the burlap mask from Doobadoo.

I have finished off the card with some border strips and sentiment off the CD and a sentiment off the computer.

Wow, Kym!
That is a fabulous card! I love the slight grunge to it. The texture pops right through the computer screen and makes me want to touch the card! Great job! Thanks for joining us at the Craft Room Door this week! Hugs, Cathy
