Handyman

My second post today is a Father's Day card as there are a few 'Father's Day' card challenges this week.  My own Dad passed away over twenty years ago, when I was in my thirties, so this card will go into my box of cards I sell for charity.  My Dad would have had a giggle if I had given him a card like this.... he wasn't the greatest DIY expert!!
 The stamp is one a bought years ago by Funstamps, but I can't remember ever using it.  The image is coloured with Promarkers and I've gone over the grey 'metal' with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush to give it a shine.  I've embellished the bottom panel with 'screw' brads.  The sentiment is simple so it can be sent to a Dad for any occasion.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

This is just a wonderful Father's Day card, perfect for that handyman, or not-so-handyman as the case may be. Great idea to use the Wink of Stella on the metal parts. Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along this week at the Mod Squad Challenge

That is a great image for a DIY type dad. And those brads are fan-freakin-tastic. What a perfect embellishment for that image. Fab card.
