A treasured moment

This is my DT card for Pear Tree Designs where the challenge for this week is a Father’s Day Project – to create something relating to Father’s Day.We were extremely lucky to  be provided with this fantastic digital image,The Dock, from The Character Cafe who have kindly offered to become a sponsor for the blog.

I’ve coloured the image using Promarkers and have added touches of Glossy Accents to give a hint of sunlight hitting the water.Here’s a closer view:

I used a splash of orange to break up the blue and green.All papers are Making Memories Ethan range.The buttons are Papermania.I’m sure my Husband will NEVER understand just how lucky he is to receive THREE on one card.The thread is some I’ve had for yonks laying around in my stash.The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Anytime Messages set.I’ve also used a Nellie’s Rectangle Multi Frame Die and a Sizzix Sizzlets Photo Corners # 2 Die.

I have to admit my DH is probably more of a Footie fan than a fisherman but when I saw the closeness of the father and son here it put me very much in mind of the relationship between my DS1 and his Dad.He loves nothing better than to follow him around and try so hard to be just like his Dad sharing some special moment.Hence the reason I chose this sentiment – and the blonde hair for the boy.

    Beautiful and meaningful card. You have a great eye for attention to detail and it shows through on your card. I enjoy how the orange buttons compliment the boy’s shirt and the water.
