For Dad

Another card for hubby's birthday tomorrow and this time I used Basic Grey papers from their Colour Me Silly range as I thought my son would want something a bit more "manly" for his dad's card.
The greetings are once again recycled from shop bought cards but I added a dab or 2 of ink to 'muss' them up a bit so they blended in better with the papers and were less pristine. I also swept the inkpad across the embossed card panel, added a few brads and doodled some faux stitching.
The layout follows this week's sketch challenge at Charisma Cardz so it will be my entry.
A simple card ... no nonsense ... no fuss ... no mushy stuff.

Great card for Jimi from Niall. I'm sure he loved it. I love the envelope shape, something different.
I have been tempted to "recycle" bits from cards which I've received or seen on cheap cards in the shops but thought perhaps it wasn't fair to cheat. Now I know it's not, I shall be on the lookout for something :-)
