Pixie Cottage Challenge Father's Day

It's time for another Once Upon A Wednesday and another super talented Guest Sketch Designer.
This time we have Donalda from Enjoying The Journey.
Donalda designs card for such fabulous companies as Whiff of Joy and Sugar Nellie and we are so excited that she created this fabulous sketch for us.

For my design card for Pixie Cottage this week, I used this adorable "man" stamp
called:Grillman by CreaSeans. I knew that I just had to use this image for a card for my dad. He has always done the "grilling or BBQing" in our family. I am sure that he will really enjoy this card!

As you can tell I flipped the sketch to the side to accommodate my image. I colored my image with copics. My papers are by Basic Grey (leftovers from an earlier project) and bazzill.
