Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. I doubt that any of them read my blog, but I send you all my best wishes for a wonderful day :)
Here's the sketch I used to make my card today - another great one from Susan @ Rainy Day Creations. I love the clean lines of this sketch, and a friend of mine just asked me to make a card for her brother, so I followed Susan's design to make this card...

I flipped the sketch to accommodate this fun digi image from Spyder's Corner called fish-fish. I colored the image with Copics to coordinate with the dsp and added some embossing and giant ric-rac from my sewing stash. I don't think the photo captured it very well, but I used glossy accents on the bubbles and fish lips just for fun!
If you have time, click the link above and play along with Susan's sketch challenge. I was the very lucky winner last week, and you could be the next one!
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to do something special for that dad in your life - it's his day :)
