A Bit of Manly...

Flourishes is in the midst of showcasing all of it's newest releases right now... so yummy... and they also have posted a challenge for the release this week... "Make it Manly"!

So I created a cute card for my Dad for Father's Day next month using their "A Man's View".

The special part of this card is that you spin the dial on the right side of the card and you can see multiple Father's Day quotes appear within the TV screen in the stamped image.

So lovin' this card...

Some of the quotes include:

Fatherhood is pretending you love most is soap-on-a-rope. ~Bill Cosby

Dad, you're someone to look up to no matter how tall I've grown. ~unknown

Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes. ~Gloria Naylor

I also took the time to paper pierce the chair and lampshade. I coloured the remainder of the scene using my Copics.


  1. Very nice! Love the colors!

  2. This is so "manly" what a wonderful card, Ally. Love the details, you've created a card any guy would appreciate! What a fantasic idea with the TV screen. Incredible, I'm lovin' it!

  3. Love it Ally! Very manly.
