What's Cookin, Dad?

Since Father's Day is fast approaching, I am doing another Father's Day/Masculine Card that reminds me of one of my favorite summer activities. It's great time for cooking out on the grill! We're having a cookout this weekend for Father's Day, but dad gets a break and someone else will do the cooking.

The image for this card is from Doodle Dragon Studios. I colored it in using my new Promarkers. (Which I absolutely LOVE and don't know how I ever got along without them!!!) I used the sketch at Passion For Promarkers as the card layout. The background paper is from the ever growing paper stash. The buttons are recycled from old clothes. (Gotta love recycling!)I used punches from Stampin Up! To punch out the scalloped squares, and the squares of Patterned Paper. I am a punch fanatic and my punches are my all time favorite tools!!!

The inside of the card has a Father's Day sentiment, but I forgot to take a pic of the inside of the card, sorry. :(

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
