Father's Day card #2

Mornin' hens!  As promised, here is my second Father's Day card.  This one is for my Dad.  {grin}  He'll LOVE it!  I used another Paper Smooches set this time.  This one is called "Zoo Crew".  I started by stamping my images onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and then colored them with my Copics.  Next, I cut them out and mounted them to this scene I created using both  October Afternoon's "Sidewalk" and My Minds Eye "Away We Go" collections.  I stamped the jungle leaf image onto the OA DP and created a hanging branch effect in the corner (ummm, since giraffes are always eating leaves, right?) and then using the same paper, I made a few hills for a nice ground effect as well.  I added the little picket fence behind the images using my MS border punch and then matted the whole panel with some SU Basic Black CS.  I drew some faux stitching lines around the outer edges and stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner.  To finish, I sponged some distress ink along the bottom edge, tied on this cute striped grosgrain ribbon, and added some Glossy Accents to Dad's eye!!  Tee-hee!
Have a wonderful Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!  {{{hen hugs}}}
