Happy Father’s Day

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

Rich Cocoa Ink by Memento

Z2194 Sky Ink

Z2155 Topiary Ink
