Hi again, Happy Friday....whoop whoop!!

As promised, here I am with the card I made for my Dad's Birthday....HAPPY BIRTHDAY Pops!

I bought this image a while ago, and have been saving it for dad's birthday....I couldn't resist it when I saw it over at Bugaboo!

The image is from the Gus Birthday set, called Recount, and has been coloured with Promarkers.

The BPs are digital, from a collection called FESTIVAL, and I used the journalling panels as mats for the image and the sentiment (which comes with the image, although I remade it using a different font.)

The 'd a d' were also from the kit, and are backed using digi buttons from the kit too.

All elements have been inked using an antique brown, and attached using foam pads for a 3D effect.

I finished it all off with some tiny square gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Thanks so much for popping by, have a great weekend everyone!
