2 for Dad

We are going up to the Midlands on wednesday to see the family and take cards for events this month and next.
These are cards I made for my Dad for his birthday and Father's day.
This is for his birthday - he always wears a shirt and tie when he goes out so it's very suitable for him. The image is a stamp from Funstamps called 'Gent's shirt'. I ve coloured the stripes with Whispers pens and decoupaged the cuff, collar and tie on the blue one and added a blue brad for the cufflink.
The shirts are in pink, green and blue which fits in with the theme on the Lilli of the Valley challenge site. This second card is for Father's day, which is 2 days before his birthday.
I've stamped an image from the Daisy and Dandelion collection by Design Objectives onto brown paper and again coloured it with Whisper pens. The letters have been stamped and glittered. Multi layered flowers with brad centres complete the card.
This fits in with the challenge on Cute Card Thursday to include letters or numbers on a card.

Love the way you've done the collar, cuff and tie on the one shirt and the glittery letters on the father's day one look fab!
