Happy Daddy's Day and a Sketch 4 You!

Hey, my 1st real entry for 2 Sketches 4 You...last week I was a day late in getting my project done and submitted :(
I thought their sketches last week were amazing but somehow they were able to pull out another amazing sketch to work with this week. This week it's Kazan's turn to present the sketch and it is also the 1st week they are having a prize! Not only a great prize but a prize I could REALLY use... a set of Sakura Glaze 3-D Ink Pens with very yummy colors!

Here's Kazan's sketch:

And here is my take on it in which I used to make my dad's day card, you know because he's a great dad! The pictures were taken in one of those photo booths and are circa 1975...I have to find out from him later...

LOVE LOVE this new stamp I just got! From Stampers Anonymous "Memories" Frame. Don't you just love the swirls!! I do!

Recipe for this special creation:
-CPs: The Paper Company Sable, Parchment Ivory, Metallic Steel Blue and Bazzill Neutral Tan (I think that's the color?)
-Ribbon: Offray Mudpie
-Stickers: Sticko Phrase Cafe "My Dad"
-Fonts: scrapNfonts CK Frankfurt
-Stamps: Stampers Anonymous "Memories" Frame and Inkadinkado "Handmade with Love"
-Colorbox Fluid Chalk Inks: Dune, Creamy Brown and Blue Iris

-Stickles: Waterfall
-Cricut Carts: AE for the Scallop Frame, Beyond Birthdays for Hugs to You using the shadow feature and Opposites Attract for "to a great dad" using the upright and base features.
-Misc items: Provo Craft Deckle Scissors, embossing powder, heat gun, marker with a watercolor brush, variaous sizes and colored rhinestones, various blossoms, Vellum, Mini Pop Dots, MM Sticky Squares

TFL and have very Happy Daddy's Day weekend!
