Father's day gift......

Hi everyone,
I got a special request to make this book...
Which is a good thing.... It helped me to unwind,
I hope you like it.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges.
Charisma Cardz - Fathers Day  35.. 12-6-14

A Vintage Journey - Get some Texture 17 .. 12-6-14

Baffies Kreativladen - For a Man 46.. 11-6-14



I started with a note-book from the £ shop....

The first layer is a piece of carpet tile,
Then i added a piece of Kraft card,
The next layer is a piece of corrugated card....

Then i added the main image,
The banner is from a left-over piece of leather i used to upholster a seat.....

Finally i added more text & some interesting buttons ....
Can buttons be interesting ?

Items used.
Notebook  (£ shop)
Carpet tile (B & Q)
Kraft card, From my stash.

Just a note stamp (Design objectives)
