Father's Day Card Challenge!

Hello and Happy Wednesday Everyone! You are not gonna believe
this but I almost forgot I had to make a Design Team card for our
Challenge over at Cricut Cardz Challenge Blog! I'm usually pretty
good at having my project done early and I just realized this last
night! Thank goodness several blogs are having this same challenge
or I would be scrambling! LOL So today's project is for
Cricut Cardz Challenge # 79 - Make a Father's Day Card using
your Cricut and any colors or cartridges you'd like! Sounds like
a good one to me! I used the sketch from Mojo Monday # 195
to make my card... So you know I will be putting in it their
Challenge as well... Let's take a look at my card.... :o) 

Card stock, Ink, Scallop Border Punch - Stampin' Up
Antique Copper Brads - Making Memories
Brown Baker's Twin
Stamp - My Pink Stamper (Happiest Moments)
Cartridges - Father's Day (Car) Cut @ 1 1/4"
I used my Gypsy & the Hide Contour feature to make
the Silver Background for the car.
Lacey Labels (Circles) Cut @ 3" w/Shadow
Country Carnival Imagine Art Cartridge - All
the Designer paper was made using this cartridge.

Here's a side view to show the added dimension
on the Car... I cut the Blue part of the car 2 x's.
And I added some dimension to the circle as well....

The inside was done using some of the left over scraps
 and then I used my Word program to print out the inside
sentiment in brown ink.

So here are the Challenges I'm putting this card into:
Mojo Monday - Sketch #195
My Sheri Crafts - Father's Day
Sew Many Challenges - Father's Day
Crazy 4 Challenges C4C91 - Masculine Card or Project
