JAI 176 Just add blokes

Hello there,
well another plague of germs has hit our house this week so it's just as well I had this one prepared early for this weeks challenge at Just Add Ink. This is a great challenge to get yourself prepared ahead for any guy related occasions - birthdays, Father's Day for example, because this week we want you to Just Add Blokes (Blokes = men, here is AUS).  And that's just what I did! Here's my Father's Day card for my Dad.

I don't often pull out DSP  (although I have plenty of it!) but I knew I wanted to use bites of colour and pattern to support the main image. The chair is kind of simple but also kind of quirky which I think is how the whole card turned out. I also couldn't resist adding the arrow clip because this card really seems to be speaking directly to you, and the arrow kind of says start here!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT for some fabulous bloke (guy) inspiration! Thanks for visiting.

  1. Sit back and relax - that's what most blokes do really well, eh Kim?!! A fun card, with a great colour scheme Kim ♥
