French Foliage for Dad.

I have just spent a rather pleasant afternoon playing very loud music and crafting. It's not something I do very often - play loud music my kids really complain when I do! My choices don't always go down very well with them.
My card today is based on the sketch over at Simply Stampin'
My card has a masculine theme - it's for Father's Day and uses my French Foliage set.

The base card is some Papermania Kraft Basics stamped with Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel and Pumpkin Pie inks. I used my Bind it All to punch down the side of the card stock so that it looked like it had been torn from a book. The edges were distressed using scissors and then inked and some twine was tied around the whole piece.
OK - I'd better turn the music down now - the natives are getting restless so I'd better go and feed them - bye for now - Jacqueline xx.
