Bugaboo Gus/Dad card

I know I have recently used this gorgeous Bugaboo's Gus image and sentiment but I thought it also suited my Dad so have created a different card but with the same digi. I find it so difficult to make male cards. At least I'll hopefully have a little stash of them after these last couple of weeks with most challenge blogs asking for male inspired cards!

The black flourish is from Flourish with a Bling and most of the papers used here are from Echo Park.

Flourish with a Bling are a retail store as well as wholesale so you can buy direct from us now! We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here. If you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish!

  1. Lucy, this is so cute! I love Gus and this is one of my favorites. I really like the bold colors. Most designers shy away from orange, but I love it. I think you managed to harness all that orange power by pairing it ups with blue. Nice design choice! Thanks for stopping by our house at 613 Avenue Create. We look forward to your next visit!
