SMC Father's Day card

Prize Package -- 5 free digi stamps



I chose Owen with Flowers for my Father's day card. I was unable to see my Create A Card sketch a few weeks ago when my internet was out so I decided to use one of those sketches this time.
I colored Owen with my alcohol markers (the only copic brand I have is the flesh tones, all the rest are Bic, Sharpie and Prisma). I added a little dab of Studio G green glitter glue for his buttons. The background papers are made with Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Meadow and Lettuce greens with gold highlights then ran thru the cuttlebug with a Sizzix folder called Flowers and Vines. The redish strip is Currant and Eggplant inks and ran thru the same embossing folder. I used a scrap of gold ribbon and the flower brads came from Making Memories Spring Fling.
