Happy birthday Dad

This is the card that I made for my FIL a few weeks ago. The result of a Friday evening in a hotel room with my Copic pens. I was away for the weekend on the brilliant Copicific retreat run by Wendy from Stamps and Memories and Dawny P, such a fun weekend with brilliant company and lots of lovely food and crafting. I went down the evening before, booked into my room, promptly re-arranged all the lighting in the room and coloured away!!! I was really pleased with the result, especially as I thought it would look like a woodpecker by the time I had finished with it!!

I am going to enter it into the following challenges:
Rubys Rainbow - Wings
Digital Tuesday - Anything goes
Paper Sundaes - Digital
2 Sisters - Anything goes
