Yep, this week the challenge at

Father's Day will sneak up on me before I know it,
so I decided to get my Dad's card done now!
The photo was cut from DCWV paper and looks soooo much like me when I was young!
Dad loves the vintage cars and all things old-timey!
This Crafty Individuals stamp was perfect!

I paired it up with the papers from DCWV, "Vintage Stack" and "Tattered Time Matstack" and some die-cut gears and sprockets from Tim Holtz!
It's hard to tell, but the black trim piece is actually a metal corner reinforcer from an old office supply box! I got my hands on several and tore them down and flattened them to make these accents.

The book plate is JoAnn's Essentials.

With the challenge being "Anything Goes" , there will be no shortage of entries!  The DT will be busy this week! 
Go get your card finished and enter now at DYSU!

This card was IDEAL for the challenge at:
 Cupcake Craft Challenges (Recycled item, the metal trim, of course!)
Colour Create Challenge (Browns and Creams)
