It's Father's Day

This is the card Lydia gave to her Dad.  Caleb and Phoebe decided to make their own card without interference from me!! 

The base card is Bazzill kraft cardstock,  the designer paper is Dovecraft and some plain brown card from the Paper Mill.  The sentiment is cut out of kraft card with the Craft Robo and sponged with Frayed Burlap distress ink.  The edges of the matted pieces of card are all distressed with the Xcut distressing tool and turned up slightly at the edges.  The chipboard star is cut with a Sizzix die using the Cuttlebug, then covered with a scrap of the Dovecraft paper and fine string tied around it. I then added some buttons and inked the edges of the base card with distress ink.  Very quick to put together! 

This is the card the two wee ones made.  The only thing I was allowed to do was tie the bow in the centre.  It now has pride of place on the mantelpiece Daddy is so pleased with it!
Thanks for visiting again :)

Oh your card is stunning Sarah - love the colour combo and layout and the embellies are just perfect.
And as for the card from the little'uns .... wow! (They're obviously a chip off the old block!)
