Dad Card for 4 Challenges

Happy Thursday, bloggers! I hope you are all having a great day. I have a card to enter into a few challenges today. The background paper is from Hot Off The Press Heritage pack. The truck is from the Nifty Fifties cart, cut with Core Couture paper. I embossed the background with the Sizzix argyle folder and inked the edges with walnut Distress Ink. I added foam stickers to the back to lift it off the page. The tree stamp is my favorite Tim Holtz stamp, embossed with fine black embossing powder. I also inked the edges with walnut Distress Ink. "For my Dad" is from Scrappy Mom's All in The Family Stamps, also embossed with fine black powder.

 I am entering the card in the following challenges:
  1. Getting Cricky with K Andrew's Simply Sunday Challenge: retro daddy
  2. Cricut Cardz Challenge #75 - masculine birthday card using something with wheels
  3. Die Cutting Divas: Challenge #15 - masculine cuts
  4. Little Red Wagon Challenge #81 - use a tree
Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already (click here). Have a great day :)
