Fathers Day

My father died some time ago but since I've been crafting I remember him with something crafty. This is this years offering , Dad and I on holiday in Wales(mum took the photo).
I started by using a Martha Stewart punch on plain paper then added a sheet of London market paper which I distressed the edges.
This was my entry for Papercraft Star challenge 101
which received an Honorable Mention

Close up of a chipboard bird and a Kaisercraft clock, the small Bo Bunny embellishment also picked up from Ally Pally.
