Do you know this man ...


I do, it's my Dad at his BBQ. This card is for 4 challenges and they are as follows.

1. Dare U 2 Digi stamp which is this fab sketch by Kim.
2. Is over at Digital Tuesday where there challenging you to use up all your scraps. LOL not a chance !
3. Papertake would like us to use our digi downloads.
4. Creative card crew are asking for the weather or weather related and what better than a BBQ for the Summer.

This card is made from bits out my scrap crate, yes crate. The paper was fee from a magazine, the ribbon and brads are all from my stash. I put a couple of pieces of card thru my CB using Swiss dots and then inked it with an amber colour. The main card is SU and the rest is bazill. The imgae is coloured with pencils and Sansador and I've added a bit of sunburn to his nose. Ooops sorry Dad. LOL. Jim is from the Digi stamp boutique. I put the sentiment at the top to look like the sun and hand wrote it.

Ta for having a look, any comments are welcome.
