Fathers Day

Ila is running a sketch challenge at the moment to win some blog candy, so I thought i would have a go and see what i could come up with for the sketch. I have very few male cards in my stock at the moment and i had this stamp image that i recieved from Nikki that i had already coloured with my watercolour pencils so I thought I would see what i could do with it.
the backing paper is some i had printed off ages ago from a sample scrap kit, the ribbon is from my stash, the buttons and sentiment are printed from the computer and then embossed with extra thick embossing powder to give them a bit of depth. I have used mulberry paper behind the stamped image to give it a bit of the look of turf on a golf course.
The whole card is a bit dark to me but that could be because i normally tend to use a lot of bright or pastel colours but it seems to have worked out quite well
