MY DAD'S THE COOLEST ...

This card features an image by Patricia Gomez, the talented artist and owner of Pattie's Creations.  She has called it "Dog Days of Summer" and this image was the winner of the Group Owner's Category of the CDAC Digital Drawing Challenges.
You can purchase this image in Pattie's Etsy store HERE, but, as a member of CDAC you are able to purchase this image, together with my image, Leggy Lilli, for the special price of USD3, for the two.
CLICK HERE to find out more about a further challenge for those who have purchased this 'deal'.

To create y card, I printed the image and the sentiment on white cardstock, and coloured using alcohol markers and a white gel pen for the highlights.  I used a simple black mat for the square cut image, and as embellishments used three black acrylic squares as I wanted to keep the card very manly.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
