A cut above .......

Today's card is a special request from a new friend ..

the brief, being, electrician, woodwork, wood turning, live music, saxaphone......... how do you incorporate this into one card ............ and a father's day card for a person i've never met.......

Having racked my two blonde braincells for inspiration I got out the cricut and some of my new fav papers I found the perfect image ....... of course the new adorable Wellington had to be here somewhere.  That combined with good old Tim's distress inks and tools created the perfect backdrop.  Hand coloured buttons, pleated ribbons and charms from stash finished this off completely.  The base of the card was made in three bits and is cut from Papermania Cardstock.    The Dad is cut from Hunkydory cardstock.  The rest of the papers are Wellington from Papermania.
