This is such a fantastic male image.  It's called Sophisticated Gentleman, from Kenny K.  I've used the image before.  You can find that post here.

This time I've used the image for a Father's Day card.

I've coloured the image with markers and framed it with a Spellbinders die cut frame.

My papers are from two different paper packs: the plaid from the PhotoPlay Best Dad Ever pack, as is the #1 Dad tag; and the print paper from the Simple Stories Dad paper pack, as is the sentiment running across the top.  The print paper turned out to be such a fantastic find, because my Dad's grandfather came from the town of Peebles in Scotland, and if you look at the bottom left corner of that paper, you'll see Peebles listed.  I cut the piece I needed specifically to show that little bit.

I've used a Bo Bunny glitter brad for the tag.  The wine barrel and goodies are Jenni B.

That's it from me!  Thanks for popping in for a look!
