Fathers Day Card for my Dad


I made this card today for my Dad, I must get it posted now! I followed this week's sketch at One Stop Craft Challenge...I hope I've done it justice!! I couldn't put the sentiment exactly where it should be cos of Jim's size lol.

I used another Jim image from Digi Stamp Boutique which I coloured in with my Promarkers. I used some more papers from K & Co's Hopscotch pad, and used dark blue card for matting. I inked all the papers with dark blue ink and added some Card Candy to the image.

This card also fits this week's challenges at these blogs: C.R.A.F.T Challenge, Pear Tree Designs, Cupcake Crafts Challenge, Totally Gorjuss, Magical Crafts, and Crafty Cardmakers.....all of whom wanted cards for the boys/Fathers Day, so I hope my card meets the requirements!

Thanks for looking
