#1 Dad - Father's Day card

This card is for my dad.  I've made several for others to give but this is for my dad who loves cars!!  He and a friend once owned a Model-T that had a checkered paint job!!  That would have been cool to make one on the card, but I used a digi I have.

Challenges to which I will submit this card....
Cards for men ~ blue and black
Celebrate the Occasion ~ Father's Day
Whimsical Wednesday ~ Father's Day

What I used:
~Core'dinations for the card - embossed with Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder and sanded
~Background shape from Sentimentals cut at 3 1/2" and 3 3/4"
~Vintage car digi from Stitchy Bear Stamps
~ribbon and brads

Thanks for stopping by!!!!
