Happy Father's Day

A simple Father’s Day Card for the hubby.  It took everything in me to refrain from adding buttons and bows!  My card is based on the sketch this week at Unscripted Sketches.

I colored in my image with sponge daubers.  The sponging adds a bit of color with nothing too defined.  I used a variety of supplies, with most of the stamps being retired.  Supplies are by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

Delightful Dogs by SU
C1300 Just Like You
D1477 Universal Backgrounds
1273 Desert Sand Cardstock
1388 Colonial White Cardstock
Early Espresso Cardstock by SU
Well Worn DSP by SU
Rich Cocoa Ink by Memento
Z2194 Sky Ink
Z2155 Topiary Ink
Z2123 Goldrush Ink
Z2137 Olive Ink
Wonky Scallop Border Die by MFT
