Changito BBQ Father's Day Card

I thought I'd make one more Father's Day card using Changito Chef. When we purchased plantation blinds from Home Depot a few years ago, I noticed the trimmed off ends and asked if I could take a handful. Of course, they probably thought I was nuts, but I figured they would be cool to use sometime. It took a couple years, but sometime is here. I used StazOn ink to make sure that the ink would dry and not smear on the finished wood, colored with Fabrico markers and highlighted with a white pen. I wanted to do something fun with the gingham paper, so a pleated it slightly to give the impression of a bib/napkin. The hamburgers in the background and the sentiment are from two oldie-but-goody clear sets.
Hope all the father's in your lives have a smokin' good time this weekend!
