As I am in Father's Day mode, I decided to stay with this theme. Both sentiment and thistle combine to create a card for a very patriotic dad!
This is a first for me so I hope that I have fulfilled the brief. Here is my submission
Update : Friday May 28th
I was having a look at the other fab cards that had been entered into Susan Raihala's challenge when I came across Vicki Dutcher's blog. She had entered her card in another challenge - Cas-tastic - which required a "touch of green". As I had used green in my card, I decided to follow suit. So without any more effort I have met the criteria for two challenges. This could become addictive!!!
