Dream Valley #9 - Fathers' Day

Hello bloggers! Happy Sunday to you all. We have a new challenge at Dream Valley this weekend, and the theme is very timely as it's Fathers Day. Time to get your thinking caps on and get some male cards made.

We have 2 sponsors again: One Stop Card Crafts, and Karen's Doodles.

Here is my card, one of the very few male cards I make, he he.  I used a Karen's Doodles image called Time To Relax - don't you think it's perfect to use on a Fathers Day card? I coloured with Copics, as per, and made an embellishment from a flattened Stella bottle top (other beers are available LOL). A bit of twine and a few eyelets are the only other embellishment. Hope you like it, and don't forget to check out my fellow DT's projects on the main challenge blog, they're a clever bunch and always have some great makes to show.

Image: Karen's Doodles - Time To Relax
Colouring: Copic markers
All papers and embellies from stash

Your colouring always blows me away Carole. I had to look twice cos I thought I had misprinted something on my image, until I realised that you had cleverly extended the image in the forgeground. It's bright, vibrant and perfect for a Father's Day card.
