Hangin' Out at the Pad

     Usually when asked about how he wanted to celebrate Father's Day, my dad would choose to stay home and just hang out around the "pad."  Although he's been gone for many years now, I'm going to honor him with the sentiment on this card.  Of course, the image had to fit the sentiment and we all know that frogs love (lily) pads!.  :-D


     The image came from Beccy's Place and I just adore the expression on his face!  I colored him with chalks and added shading with my ProMarkers.  I cut the image and the green mat with an inside/outside stitched die from Die-namics, and then cut the background CS with that same die so that the image was inlaid into the background except for the place where the scrap of polka dot dp was applied.

     I added the fussy cut sentiment piece and the tiny bow and left it alone.  It's a masculine card and simply didn't need anything else.  :-D

Great card NanaConnie, I thing CAS styles are a good choice for masculine cards. The sentiment works really well with the image and I can certainly relate to wanting to "hang around the pad"! Well done.
Cheers,
Beccy
