Daddy's Birthday

This card is for the Husband for his birthday from the little girls. I used an image from Meljen's Designs and tried to color the little bears up with the same color hair as our little girls. That didn't work, but I think he'll get the idea. This was actually my second attempt. The first I used Copics but I just don't have enough of them yet to do a great job. For this one I went back to my old faithful Prismacolor pencils. I'm sure he would have liked either one, for him the bragging rights would be to know I spent the whole night making a card for him. I followed the sketch at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge.
The cardstock was a core'dinations embossed cardstock that I sanded to bring out the embossing. I used denim twine in the large yellow button.
We celebrated my Dad's 70th Birthday on the weekend. And we hosted here at our house. It was a busy weekend, so for the Husband's birthday he just wants a quiet night of pizza for supper and chocolate cake for dessert. OK, I think that can be arranged ;o)
