Cool Buds Father's Day Card

Created this Father's Day card using StitchyBear BB digi, Cool Buds. Used a sketch which you can see below. Recycled some blue jean materia paper piecing a jacket for boy; I even gave the dog a blue jean collar. Distressed the edges of the square. Used Cricut cartridge Life's A Party for the glasses to complement the glasses worn by the 2 digi images. Added vellum to the glasses. Stamped Stampin' Up sentiment on blue jeans & fussy cut out with scissors. Used Crop-A-Dile to punch blue jean circles at top right. I like how the Crop-A-Dile punches fabric and wished that more punches would do that.
