Oh cutting it fine to enter a few challenges today...

I've made my last Father's Day card which is for my husband who is step-dad to my two boys, tough job but he does it so well.

I've used his favourite colour combination with inspiration from Freshly Made Sketches.  The sentiment and moustache die are from a Sugar Pea Designs set called Terrific Ties.  

As my boys are 23 and 18 they don't call him Dad so I used a mash-up of the included sentiments to be more appropriate.

Unfortunately I made a bit of an inky mess with the 'you're' and blurred it with too much ink but hey handmade cards are just that... made with love and mistakes :)

The dotty square is from Altenew Halftone squares and adds a nice backdrop for the moustache together with the Alexandra Renke die acting as a frame.
