ODBDSLC243 - Inspiration

Here is my card:
Our Daily Bread Designs, Happy Father’s Day, Happy Retirement, Matting Circles Dies, Designed by Elizabeth Whisson, Copics, sunset, beach

And here is the inspiration image:
Father's Day isn't until September in Australia, but no harm in being early :-)

I've stamped the image from Our Daily Bread Designs Happy Retirement with Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured with Copic markers.
Copic colours used: Y11, Y15, Y38, YR04, E44, B97, E42, E47

The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs Happy Father's Day. I've then diecut some button using ODBD Matting Circles Dies and added them and some brown burlap (coloured with E44) to my card. The DP is from Smart Kraft - New Deco Designs Autumn. The layers have also been inked around the edge with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.
