Friday Sketcher's Challenge -Sketch 99

So this week on Friday Sketcher's they have a wonderful sketch from sketch host Carole. This sketch is meant to be used on a square sized card but I decided to go with another A2 size...I love to challenge myself to see how much I can fit into the very cute smaller sizes. Although I think I will definitely be keeping this sketch to try it on a square size in the future!

This year I wanted to start making more cards for the boys and men in our lives so I went with a Father's Day card for this challenge. I'm not too sure if I like the way it turned out but I can say I absolutely love the adorable digi stamp image that I got for FREE from Bugaboo Stamps! Be sure to check out her adorable site and her wonderful digi's!

Here is my card:
