Love You, Dad!

This card I made for the Sketch n Stash Challenge Blog, Sketch Challenge 55.  Along with the regular challenge they also want you to use either your newest or neglected stash.  I did a bit of both!!  So here is the sketch I was following:

And here is my take on the sketch.  The new would be the stamp set.  It's called "A Man's View" from  The neglected would be the paper that I found in my scrap drawer.  I used the Hodgepodge Kit from SU for the doo-hickeys (I forget what they are called ATM).  The background is the bubble wrapper stuff they put in boxes of chocolates.  The sentiment says "Love You, Dad" and would work with either a birthday or Father's day card. I'm thinking my hubby will get this for Father's Day!!

Thanks for looking!!  :)
