Polkadoodles - Father's Day

Over on Polkadoodles this week, the challenge is simple, make a Father's Day card. As usual, I was running around with a hundred things to do on the old 'to-do' list, so I made this simple card. All the papers are from the Not for Girls CD, I love that script paper printed with the Queensbusy rules of boxing, so used that for my background, and stitched around it.
I cut the boxing gloves out three times, decoupaged them and added glossy accents for a bit of punch (pun intended)
I used one of my favourite techniques for the hook, insert a brad 'backwards' through the paper, and curl up the prongs to make a hook. This can work really well on fishing cards as well......................
Dad was done with shiny black letters by Papermania

Be sure to pop over to Polkadoodles to see what the rest of the team came up with this week.
Call back tomorrow to see who won the Cri-Kit pens, Scrappy go Lucky will be announcing the BIG winner of the blog hop too. See you then
