Happy Father's Day

Tropical storm Andrea has robbed us of sunshine today, but I'm thinking this rain will really make things grow (insert an anxious to eat fresh tomatoes face here)! I needed to make a father's day card, so 3 different challenges came together for this card:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge (masculine/father's day theme)
Ways to Use It Challenge (feature music and/or musical instrument)

I flipped Jen's sketch to a vertical version and popped the musical BG panel with foam tape.  Then it was layering time...three die cut flags, a heart circle Nestie and a fussy cut vintage truck image stamped with Riding Hood Red ink.  A metal arrow w/brad and some bling finished it off.  Patterned papers are all from MME's Lost and Found "Union Square" pad.

STAMPS: Tim Holtz "The Journey"; Verve "Dad's Day".

I came from Simon Says Stamp Challenge and saw this entry and I must say this is such a nice card. Would be a great challenge. My warmest fathers day wishes to all great dads in the world. You deserve every "manly" card... LOL.

Awesome and brilliant card! I saw this as an entry on Simon Says Stamp and I think it has all the reason to win the challenge. Beautiful ;-)
