Father's Day

I've just finished planting some iris bulbs in my garden. I planted some last year and they bloomed beautifully but a little sparsely so I have decided to add another packet or two to the same section of garden in the hope that this year there is just a mass of blooms.
They are one of my favourite flowers. It's a pity they only last for a few days.

Enough of my ramblings, you are here to see a father's day card after all.
Sadly my Dad is no longer with us but I do have a father-in-law and this is the card I made for him.

This is a free pattern from  Bergkaarten, This lady has some lovely free patterns on her blog space. I stitched it onto the back of a calendar. (I love the oatmeal colour so saved it for re purposing.) The digits on the clock face are gold beads. I'm afraid that the papers I used where just some scraps so I do not have a name or make for them. To finish I did some faux stitching with a gold gel pen.

I made the envelope using the Complete Crafter's Companion and the liner is cut from a page down loaded from Google images. I typed in the word stripes and some lovely ones came up.
