Happy Fathers Day

This is that card I made for Dad today. The image and sentiment are from a Sam Poole for Creative Expressions set. I don't usually do soppy sentiments, but I liked this one. I embossed the image and sentiment on glossy white card with detail white embossing powder. I used gold gilding flakes and flake and glitter glue from Creative Expressions to show the light coming from the lighthouse. The background is white card which I stamped in versamark one of Sheena Douglass stamps of a sailing ship and map image, repeated to cover the card and heat embossed with white detail powder. I matted and layered everything up with the same black and white card and using my oval dies. I used some white bakers twine and a black anchor to embellish and a black pearl in each corner to finish.
I hadn't intended on seeing my Dad today but we had a water pipe split in the bathroom last night (so lucky we were in and got it turned off in 2 minutes or the kitchen ceiling would have come down, rather than just water dripping through the light and down the walls). Dad bless him came round this morning and helped hubby to fix it. Definitely a day to be grateful for Fathers!
