Talking Dad ...

Just a quick post tonight to share my card for my Dad on Father's Day - it is not the most exciting card but hopefully he will like it.  Unfortunately my Dad doesn't have many hobbies so it was quite difficult to know where to start, add to that a distinct lack of suitable 'male stamps' and I had to resort to a graphic based card.

The speech bubbles have been die cut, coloured, stamped and then inlaid into the card front.

I used:

Distress ink - Salty Ocean
Stampin Up Ink - Not Quite Navy
XCut Speech Bubble dies

I'm going to enter the following challenge:
