Love You Daddy

Firstly I would love to say a great big thank you to all my wonderful followers I really do appreciate all of your fantastic comments they make me feel very lucky and special.

On to this card I love this image because it reminds me of my daughter when she was younger, my husband used to work away from home all week and she would grab hold of his leg on his arrival home and not let go in case he left again she really is a daddy's girl.

Hints and Tips
I chose to cut the lettering out of black card this makes it stand out more.  Just because it is a card for a man doesn't mean it has to be in dull colours.  When colouring your image in think of the person the card is going to. This card is going to my husband from my daughter so I have coloured the clothing in to match what he usually wears.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
Cards For Men: Challenge 12 Father's Day.
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge: Challenge #125 Father's Day.
