Keep Calm and Drink Wine

Morning Folks
My card share today is a quick and simple Fathers Day card.

I used the Keep Calm and Drink Wine digi from Pink Gem Designs which can be found here.  I used distress ink to add some colour and mounted onto kraft card and blue card.  For the background I stamped and embossed a Fathers Day sentiment several times.  I added some distress ink around the edges and mounted onto blue card.  A bit of ribbon across the centre and some faux stitching finished the card.

Hope you will agree that this makes for a very simple but effective Fathers Day card. 
Thanks for popping by and for the lovely comments you leave me.  I do read every one and really appreciate you taking the time to pop by my little blog.
