Father’s Day from CTMH

Welcome back

Today is Father’s Day and I have made a few cards out of the new papers that have just been released at the start of this month in the new Annual Inspirations book.  There are some amazing papers and some really grungy papers for great masculine cards and layouts.  Here I have used a combination of papers and some new colours from the new book along with some steam punk cogs to make some very different cards.  I have used the new Sapphire colour to add a pop of colour to these grungy cards.
