Fathers Day

Well that time of year has arrived again when it's time to make a Fathers Day card for my dear FIL in California.
What to do... the same old question yet again...
He is a fire arms instructor... hmmm.... do I do a gun theme? No
He loves the orient.... hmmm.... do I do an oriental inspired card? No
After all he has just returned from an Eastern Cruise
Last but not least he loves big cats... hmm... now that I can do.
He is a simple man who doesn't have time for fuss & bother so I kept the card very clean.
Attached the backing to the base card & the large image is attached flat onto the card whilst the two smaller images are mounted using silicone.
A very simple card for a man with simple pleasures & I know that he will love it.
Images are from the Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection CD from Joanna Sheen.
Happy crafting
