Father's Day Card

Hi Friends:  It's time for Father's Day cards again!  My card was created for 2 challenges - Father's Day and One Layer Cards, so it's a single layer (always a challenge for me!)  I stamped the below Stampin' Up! stamps and inks, and embossed them with a clear glitter embossing powder on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Then I applied some CM Iridescent texture paste through the Tim Holtz Dot Fades layering stencil.  I used Distress Inks to color parts of the background.  I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of cream cardstock with Versamark ink, embossed it with the clear embossing powder, then colored it with Distress Ink and stapled it to the card.  I finished it off with jute colored with Distress Stain.  Thanks for taking a peek!  Have a great day!
