Dad's Retirement (SACC63)

This week Bugaboo is generously sponsoring our challenge.

Thank you so much for your support, Bugaboo!

So, this card ended up much more plain than I intended. I think I should have added a layer under everything but it's a little late now. No worries, because my dad is going to love it regardless. :) He retires next week and is beyond excited. 

I used 'Gus Fishing' and he's perfect for my dad. There's no resemblance between the two but the sentiment is perfect. I colored him with my Prismacolor pencils and distressed the edges of my image and the mat. My card base is Sahara Sand and my mats are Kraft. I added Glossy Accents to his glasses.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
