Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.  I made this card for my niece's to give to their father (my brother).  I have been trying to get them to sit down and make a card but it's summertime and I just can't get them to.  They are constantly running around outside.  At least they are getting a lot of fresh air.

To make this card I used an image from Platypus Creek Digitals. I colored the flowers with Whisper Strokes markers and popped them up with 3-D foam tape.  The sketch is from Sketch Saturday.  I have included the sketch below.  The papers are from The Paper Co., Bazzill and my Stash 'O Scraps.  I used an embossing folder from Darice and die cut from Sizzix.  Finally the buttons came from Bo Bunny.  

I have entered this into the following challenges:

Platypus Creek #8 - For the boys
Pile It On #23 - Put a button on Father's Day
Cards for Men #12 - Father's Day
Simon Says - Anything goes
The Poodles Parlour - Father's Day/male card
The Stamp Man - Make it for a man 
Mark's Finest - Use buttons
Here Come the Boys #28 - Anything goes

Hope you all have a wonderful day.  Thanks for stopping by.
