My hero

On A-spoon-full-of-sugar blog they have a lovely sketch by Camilla.
I have used the sketch but turn it side ways and flipped it. I hope you like it and can still see your sketch.
I have used different papers that I stamped and then coloured a bit with chalks and ink pads to help them to blend together more.
My hero is 3d highlighted from the paper and then picked out with a gold ink pad. I love using papers with words on and using it for the feature of the card.
The ribbon down the side is 3 different ribbons layered to compliment the colours on the card.
The embellishments on the bottom right are buttons with brads holding them to the card.
I wanted to give the card a feeling of opulence without going OTT.
This card is for my dads birthday on Saturday and he is my hero x x
