Penny Black Challenge Week 155 Fathers day

Hi Everybody,
Great, another week another Challenge l'm getting more confident doing these Challenges and look forward to putting a card together, last weeks challenge from Penny Black was for the ladies so this week its the men's turn and l have chosen to go for a Fathers day card which will be this  Sunday
although l won't be handing my card over to my Father it's in
Remembrance as my father passed away some time ago.
The image l used is Penny Black Cheesecake Parade and coloured it with Promarker pens, the background paper is from Summerdriggs Happy Fathers Day,
Words are Remembrance for a loving Dad, and it isn' t showing on this picture l have since Laminated the card because of where it will be placed and it will stay dry until it's removed.
Thank you for taking the time out and stopping by........... l read all comments that you leave and always appreciated your views............. Thank you Sandra H xx
