Well, it's time to start thinking about Father's Day Cards...and if you have popped by my blog long enough you have heard me talk about the "Dreaded Man Card". Give me, pinks, aquas, ribbon, and bling any day!!! With those pretties, I have no problems whipping up a card, but there in lies the problems "pretties"! I can't very well do that for a guy can I???
Well, here is what I have for you today!
I started this card with a Vanilla card base, and added a strip of textured patterned paper at the bottom. I then added a row of tickets which I distressed to give a vintage touch.
I die-cut a standard circle nestie and stamped the Classic Car from Wilson Designs' American Classics adding the Happy Father's Day sentiment from Wilson Designs' Nauti-Cool. Next I hand-cut a sentiment banner stamping You're Classic to add below the focal image.
Before placing the focal image in the center, I hand-cut a mailing tag out of cork adding my brown grosgrain ribbon on the end. The fun part begins with embellishing with some brown and cream buttons. A star that was cut from an old vintage book print embellished with a brown button in the center. For a finishing touch, another ticket to the upper right side of the buttons was added.
Thank you for some much needed inspiration at The City Crafter Challenge - Ticket To Ride. You had to have a mode of transportation and at least one ticket on your card.
Little Red Wagon - Father's Day
Before I go, I thought I would share a few pictures with you from our visit to Arlington National Cemetery yesterday. We arrived while the President was laying his wreaths, but we did not go to the ceremony as they had a stop movement by the Secret Service.

Thank you for letting me share, and I hope you have a wonderful week!
