Edwin with bunch of circles card

Happy Father's Day everyone! Since today is Father's Day, I am posting a card using my Edwin's image. I do most of girly girl type of cards, therefore, I am not very good at doing card for boy/man's theme. I have to tell you everytime when I use Edwin to make a card, I have to spend extra time just to think of what colors should I use, but everytime I enjoy doing it. Taking this kind of challenge is always a pleasure to me.

I found some DP from an unopened package of Provo Craft's 8 x 8 Christina Cole's Slab pad which I bought quite a while ago. Once I choose the DPs, I punched out many circle rings/shapes using all my Stampin Up punches to match up with this DP.

Here is my finished card front:

Cabio, stunning card. I love the colour scheme and you've coloured Edwin beautifully. The inside of your card is fab also. And how you've arranged those rings and circles randomly is superb.

Hugs.
