Just for You

Good morning all. Well what a washout of a weekend that was! Did manage to get out for lunch yesterday though which was very pleasant. Sharing the card I made for my Father in law today.


Image is a Meadow Cottage Bear decoupage from Crafter's Companion which I've layered onto scalloped nestie rectangles in red, white and blue. Backing paper is from Wild Rose Studio (I think!), ribbons and star button are from Crafty Ribbons and sentiment is from my stash.
Showing the dimension on the image.
