Father's Day Challenge at Anything Goes

Good morning ....

Today I have a DT card for the challenge over at Anything Goes and for this fortnight our challenge is

Father's Day

It's Father's Day here in the UK on Sunday 16th June so here's the ideal opportunity to show us all those lovely cards you've been making for your Dad, Grandad or the ones you make for your kids to give to Dad.

My card has ended up as a CAS card simply because the image was quite large and lots of twiddly bits just didn't seem right, so all I've done is add a ticket and some rhinestones at the corners. Oh,  and I also added some glossy accents over the windows.

For my card I've used an image from Just Inklined called Fares Please. They have a lovely broad selection of images and quite a few for those tricky male cards.

I went with this more traditional image rather than a cute one. It just seemed a bit more fitting for my Dad.
It should give him a trip down memory lane, lol.

Copics colours used for Fares Please :-

Tyres: C7, C5, C, C1
Chrome: C00, C0, C1, C3
Cream: E50, E55, E57
Beige: E40, E41, E42
Green: G21, G24, G94, G99
Blue Coats: B91, B95, B97, B99

I even googled the advertisements to try and get the right colours for those to make it more authentic.

I'm really looking forward to seeing all your lovely Father's Day cards. Why not pop on over to the Anything Goes Challenge  Blog and have a look at all the wonderful creations from my fellow teamies to give you some inspiration. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-
