Another Dad's card

What fab weather we have had today, much brighter in my neck of the woods, but we did need yesturdays rain.

Last week I was away and I found a craft magazine, (well I needed a fix ) that have to say I hadn't come across before. I was drawn to it as it had a fancy fold card pattern in it and I do like messing with card styles that are a little different. The magazine was Making Cards, they also had some fab papers inside too. I decided that I'd have a play and combine the papers and the card template and have to say I'm actually quite impressed. I did alter it slightly to accommodate the 'DAD' and may have to make an envelope now but hey ho, I think my Dad will be suitably impressed.

Here it is;-





I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Sugar Creek Hollow-shaped cards
just us girls-3D fathers day project
Prairie fairy friday-more than 1 fold
Lexi's creations-fathers day/man card
