Stamptacular #63 – GDT card

Hello everyone, today I’m sharing my GDT card for the stamptacular challenge.  This week’s challenge is “a tribute to all fathers” so we would like to see your cards/projects for dad.  Great timing as Father’s day is next Sunday, so you’ll be organised for once lol!  Don’t forget you must stamp on your project to qualify for our prizes (digi stamps are allowed too). 

Here is my card:

stamptacular #63 - father's day

stamptacular #63 - father's day (close up)

This image is perfect for my father as he is always sleeping in his chair – something we tease him about constantly lol!  I had to use stickers for the sentiment on my card as my printer had run out of ink at the time but I think they look ok. 

Please check out the rest of the DT cards as they are a very talented bunch and have created some amazing samples for your inspiration.  They always appreciate the lovely comments you leave for them. 

There are fab prizes up for grabs this week – you can win 4 digi images of your choice from Meljen’s designs and also 3 digi images from wink, wink wink
