Brand New Fathers Day

I had an order for a Fathers Day card which has now been well received -the little boy who the card was from was only born 11 days ago so the card which was only going to contain the scan picture also has a very very recent photo too!!!
The papers and metal buttons are from stash/star die from Creative Dies/banner die from Lil'inker Designs and sentiment was computer generated in Dafont.

UPDATE-I asked about the response when received---he cried ,bless him!!!
always fun-for dad
