Fathers Day Card

In an attempt at becoming more organised I've made a start on this years Fathers Day cards.  Fathers Day falls on June 17th this year, so I really am starting early, astonishingly early for me in fact, as I can usually be found still finishing cards on the big day itself - whatever the big day may be.    I'm also sorting through my crafty stash and finally using what I find.

This card has been made using a Redhotbed "clutter card" decoupage sheet, DCWV "all about boys" backing papers and American Craft badges.  I followed sketch 67 at Papertake Weelkly, but was having problems deciding on the finishing touches it needed when I remembered a fabulous card I had seen recently.  Tracy's cards are all amazing and as soon as I saw the tabs on her tiny blessings card I knew I was going to try them - although I didn't think it would be so quite so soon.  It still needs something in the bottom left hand corner, but I  don't know what yet so have decided to leave it for the minute and hope inspiration strikes.

Result!  While I was tidying my desk I found some male themed die-cuts I'd taken out earlier to maybe use on my card.  Of course, I forgot all about them once they were buried under a pile of papers, but lo and behold amongst them was the (I think) perfect finishing touch to that left hand corner.  I love it when that happens.
