Last time Out we asked for Sun Sea and Sand and we certainly got it. looking through all the lovely entries certainly made the days seem brighter during the foul start we are having to the summer here in England.
To see if your card was chosen as one of the top three check out the Ooh La La Creations Blog .
This time our challenge is...
'Something Beginning with F'.
I have to admit at first this one got me wondering then I hit on the idea of designing a father's Day Card with a fancy fold that featured flight as the subject.
I used the 'Boys to Men' CD for the image and the papers which I printed directly onto the card.

I used an image from the traditional decoupage section for the back piece of the pop up box and then cropped the large balloon and played around with the size and colours in My Craft Studio for the individual balloons. I cut the individual balloons out and mounted them on acetate strips cut from a plastic container that had once contained soft fruit (washed and dried of course).
I mounted these on the strips inside so that the balloons looked as if they were flying, and added a sentiment and a message on the back of the card.
I am happy to report that Dad really loved it, and that he had a very Happy Fathers' Day in his new home, and going to one of our favourite restaurants for lunch. I also took him some home baked goodies all his favourites from Mum's old recipe book as a gift.
Of course theer are lots of other things beginning with F and several of these feature in the other DT projects for this challenge so pop over to their blogs and leave them some love.
