A Car for Dad's Day - wouldn't that be nice?! ;)

No, sadly, we can't really get Dave a car for Dad's day, but we are getting him something car RELATED..... so the guys and I decided that his Father's Day card needed to have a car on it.  this great image & sentiment from Crafty Secrets is almost like his dream car, so it was perfect!

it's taken me for-ev-er to get it scanned because it is so humid here. nothing is drying very fast... and that includes the crystal effects I used on the windshield and rear view mirror as well as just plain ol' glue.

the card is fairly simple because that is how Dave likes them. papers are from the long retired Basic Grey Boxer collection, silver mesh is retired SU!, pennant border die is MFT, main image & matting die is by Spellbinders. the key is from our Jeep that went to its resting place last fall..... a moment of silence..... sigh..... I loved that Jeep, which is why I kept the keys. since the card is going to Dave, I knew it was okay to use the key on here. ;)

Love your Fathers Day card Jennifer and the pink looks cool and adds to the retro vibe. Great idea to add Glossy Accents to the windshield!

That's a cool Dad's Day card and love that classic car you used. Sounds like it must really be dressed up with the windshield done that way. It is so humid here too, so my wet embossing is pretty much at a stop here.
