Another Father's Day Card

This is a monumental moment in my card making as this is my very first card made using my new Big Shot and new Nesties. I've had the Big Shot for a few days, scared stiff of it but had a chat to myself and had a go this morning, I am definitely in love with it, it's so easy to use. This card is for my FIL for Father's Day, everything on the card is busy but I quite like that about it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Friday Sketchers - Sketch 105 (I love this sketch!)

Supplies:
Papers - Doodlebug from the Glitter Pot
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics
Image - I Love Honey by Penny Johnson from Stampavie coloured with Promarkers and Frosted Lace Stickles on the honey
Brads - from stash
String/cord - from stash
Tools - Sizzix Big Shot, Nestabilities circles large & Classic scallop circles large, Quickutz alphabet die
