Classic Cars

Hello fellow crafters,
Where is this year going?? I seem to be trying to catch up all the time, and next week we will be in the first week of September. Here in Australia, Father's Day is on the first Sunday in September, so here is another card for that occasion. I made my card for John several weeks ago (here). I will place this one in a shop where I sell some of my cards, when I go into town tomorrow.
I try to keep male cards fairly basic, with a minimum of embellishments. The images are from the Graphic 45 'A Proper Gentleman' collection, layered on gold patterned card. For the embossed panel I used Cuttlebug Clockworks', and the greeting is yet another peel-off sticker. 

I did not photograph the inside of the card - it just says "With love to a Classic Dad".

Challenges I would like to enter are -
The Squirrel and the Fox #25 - 'One for the Men'
Challenges 4 Everybody #1 - 'Anything Goes'
Penny's Paper Crafty #90 - 'Masculine'
That Craft Place - 'Vintage'

I must go and put some more wood on the fire, then put the dishwasher on, then fold all the clothes and linen I washed today, so until next time, thank you for your company.
