Passion for ProMarkers Challenge no. 1

I'm new to ProMarkers, but already love 'em to bits, they're so easy to use and blend and I was thrilled to find this new challenge blog with amazing prizes for the first challenge.

I thought I ought to make a start on some Father's Day cards and this is my first one, the stamp is from Elzybells, and of course I've coloured him with my ProMarkers, the background is made with a stamp from the SU! set "Seeing Spots" with Creamy Caramel ink onto Creamy Caramel cardstock, the corrugated card is from my stash and the washers and nails, which I thought gave it a "manly" feel are from my hubby's workbench - sssh don't tell! I've attached the sentiment, which came with the stamp, with a brad and just hung it on the one side to look like a bit of a bodged DIY job and used some SU chalks to "age" it a bit.
