For My Pops !

Good Morning all. Today I am sharing the card I've made for my Dad for Father's Day. I followed this week's Willow Sketchie sketch for this one, and also used one of their images too.
My papers are digital, from a collection called Baby Boy (although I don't remember where I purchased them from.) I coloured my image using Promarkers (I need to buy a new Sandstone promarker as you can see, this one is running out and a bit 'patchy.')

I added the 'Best Dad' to the sign before printing, and made the sentiment at the same time, using Cutie Pop font.
I started by cutting a 6x6 Bazzill card in dark brown and have layered with Kraft card. I also added some doodling around the edge of the panels. I decorated the inside to match too.
I would like to enter the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T. #159 - Father's Day.
Charisma Cardz #23 - Male Cards.
Delightful Challenges - For the Boys.
DYSU #76 - Boys/Men.
