Father's Day

Over at Card Makin' Mamas the new challenge is Father's Day so we would like to see a card to celebrate Father's Day or a Special Man in your life.  Here is my card:

I have used the Vintage Car digital image from our sponsor's this week Digi Darla Designs.  I have coloured it with Prismas as I wanted it just to be softly coloured.  The image has been cut and matted with Spellbinders Nesties and the edges distressed with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The sentiment was computer generated.  The papers are by Bo Bunny from the Timepiece Collection.  I have used my Dienamic Dies for the corner pieces and Tim Holtz for the gears.  Some Card Candy and ribbon from my stash to finish it off.  I have followed the sketch from Sketch N Stash again as I really like it!  Our sponsors this week are Digi Darla Designs:

they are giving the lucky winner five images of their choice!  You can use any image to enter the challenge but your project MUST be a card.  Please pop over to Card Makin Mamas and see what the rest of the talented DT have made.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch n Stash - Sketch (Papers, ribbon and Card Candy are my stash I used)
Crafts 4 Eternity - Travel
Pattie's Creations - Father's Day
Phindy's Place - Father's Day
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Male Card
Charisma Cardz - Travel
Digi Doodle - Male Card

I hope you all have a great weekend and I will see you tomorrow, take care xx
