Father's Day Card for Tony

I just realized that Father's Day is this weekend.  I needed to make a card pretty quickly because it needs to be mailed cross-country before Sunday.  I made this card for my dad, Tony.  He has always liked bulldogs so I thought he might like this image.  The digi is from Just Inklined.  I think I have purchased all of their dog digis.  I'm just waiting for the opportunity to use them.

I colored him with Copics.  The paper is one of my favorites from October Afternoon.  I stocked up on it so it would last a long while. 

Copics:  C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, E97, E99, R20, R21, R22, R24, YR00, YR20, YR24
