Happy Birthday Daddy!!!

A quick post before I off to my bed!

Made this card for a friend, well it's for her little boy to give to his Daddy :)

The photo was scanned and put into Word before changing to 'Greyscale'. The sentiment was printed using 'SA Simple Lines' font - isn't it a great font for a card off a child!
I printed onto vellum to achieve the 'Bestest Dad' paper.

I decided to decorate the inside almost as much as the front - I do so many cards for these friends I have to try and do something different every time!
