Happy Dad's Day

Happy Wednesday everyone!! Hope your week is going well so far.  We're getting closer to the weekend - yay!

I love celebrating the men in my life just not making masculine cards.  Eek!!  They are such a huge challenge for me since I can't add a bow or flower in any open space.  Thankfully, I only have a couple more to go and then I'm done! Phew!

Today I'm sharing a card for Dad's Day using this cute little Edwin. 

I used up some old, and I mean old, Making Memories paper from the Eliza collection.  I've distressed everything in Memento Desert Sand and colored him in Copics.  I've used a Sharpie White Poster Paint pen for his cheeks and the highlights on the rose he's holding.  The tiny blue brad was in my stash, too!

Thanks for stopping today and taking a peek.  I hope you have a wonderful day!
