A Fathers Day Card

This is the card I have made for my Dad for Fathers Day. He is a very good cook and has a little dog called Riley so I thought this Karens Doodles digi image would be appropriate.

I have followed the sketch over at Karens Doodles Scandinavian challenge blog. The image also available at Karens Doodles has been coloured in using Promarkers. The backing papers are digi downloads, the blue spotty paper is from Pink Petticoat and the stripey paper is from Cuddly Buddly. The sentiment was a free digi stamp from Hobby Palais blog
The blue glossy dots in the left hand corner were in a Docrafts goody bag. The tag has been cut using a Sizzix die which I then threaded with green eskimo wool.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
Karens Doodles Scandinavian Sketch
Charisma Cardz Spots and stripes
Trimmies Craft Fathers Day
Totally Papercrafts Animal Magic
Stamptacular Sunday Tribute to all fathers
Cupcake Craft One for the boys
Incywincey One for the guys
Magical crafts Fathers Day
Simple Doodles Just for you Dad

Thanks for looking x

  13. Wonderful card, Julie but the rules at Karen's Doodles states you must make a new card for each of our challenges so this one will not be eligible for the US challenge. Perhaps you might make another. Good luck in the Scandinavian Karen's Doodles challenge
