RTG - Challenge #11 Midway "One for the Boys"

It's approximately midway point in the Ready Teddy Go challenge #11 - "One for the Boys", so there's still plenty of time to have a go and join in.
The theme is quite apt especially as today is Father's Day [these challenges aren't just thrown together you know, lol].

Can I wish a very Happy Father's Day to all you wonderful Daddies and Grandpappas out there, what would we do without you?

There's a fabulous £10 voucher up for grabs from

for the selected winner , so well worth having a go, lol !!!

Why not pop over to the challenge blog now as there's more inspirational cards from the DT
including one from me

It's a little known fact that I absolutely love Pirates [I blame Johnny Depp, lol]

 mmmmmm !!!! concentrate, concentrate, back to the card !!!!!

My card was fairly easy to put together, I made my own decoupaged image by printing out the same teddy six times and cutting out different bits and layers.

The rest of the card was put together using a design set from Kim McFarlane from Cuddly Buddly.

The inside was decorated with another paper and some more decoupaged "pieces of eight"

A close up of the little cute teddy bear pirate.

A photo to show the many layers used to give dimension to the whole of the front of the card.  I used Pinflair glue - the one in the syringe to give me a flexibility with the layers.  Foam pads just can't do this [not for me anyway].

Please make your way over to the challenge blog to see my team mates fantastic cards. . . and why not have a go yourself?

Thanks for visiting
