2 down, 3 to go

My friend, Dani, asked me to make her Dad
 and her brother, Father's Day cards. 
I made her Dad cards last year with the same Chicago Bears theme.
This time I went more with the animal aspects.
I also found a photo of the old Soldier Field, and I added a ton of
clear, thick, embossing powder to it, and cracked it up a bit.
Dani's brother, Robb, is a first-time Dad this Father's Day, and a huge Vikings fan, 
so hence, the purple and yellow color scheme.
I did find this vintage Viking mascot, which I thought was pretty cool.
I used the same cracked glass technique on this as well.

If I make cards for these guys next year, I'll have to come up
with something new and original.
I'm over the whole football thing.
