Party Time Dude

Today would have been my dad's 70th birthday. He journeyed to heaven suddenly in June 2005 and there's been a huge hole in my life ever since. As the only daughter, he and I had a very special relationship. The card I'm sharing doesn't 'look' like my dad, it just evokes a smile ~ which is something thoughts of dad bring to my face.

Sketch Inspiration ~ Sketch Saturday #142
I flipped the sketch upside down.

Stamp Something Challenge ~ Something Funky
You can't argue, this guy certainly evokes 'funk'.
Inky Impressions Spots and Stripes Challenge
My plaid is full of stripes and I added dots to my chipboard frame.
Incy Wincy Designs Color Me Wonderful Challenge
Use 2 different coloring mediums – I used Copics, Stickles, White Gel Pen, Paint (on the chipboard frame) and SU inks
