Happy Day to Dad

Good afternoon!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a good weekend and your week is off to a great start!  The weather has been stormy here for the last few days, but luckily, there has been only inconvenience, no damage done.  This week is going to be busy, but I am here to share a card I made for a few challenges I  like doing when I can.  Quite a few challenges had Father's Day or masculine cards as a theme, so it was fun to be able to put them together.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Bordering Blue and the patterned papers are from the Basic Grey Oxford 6x6 pad.  This is a much simpler style of card than I usually make, but that always seems to work best for masculine cards.  The cute image is digi11304 All Tied Up from QKR Stampede.  I printed it on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some grosgrain ribbon and a simple bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Seems a Little Sketchy #41 (sketch)
QKR Stampede Challenge #42 (ribbon/bows)
Simon Says Stamp Challenge (masculine/Father's Day)
