Father's Day Card

Well, it has been some time since I last posted, but I have been blogging and learning so much from all the sites that I read. So, finally, here is a card I made for Father's Day. I am going to enter this in a few challenges this week. It seems that I make a card that inspires me and then I go find the challenge that it will be accepted. I know, a bit backwards, but I seem to only make cards I really need.
My car image is from Yolanda, a digital,  You can go here to get this antique car.
My papers are a gift ( and a very generous gift) from one of the blog sites that I always read and they came to me in a bundle, so I have no designer name to share with you.
My cardstock and ink is Barn Red from Close to My Heart.
I used watercolor pencils for my image. Faber-Castell #156 teal, Eberhard Faber #849 black, #81 grey
I also used Copic E00, E21, E25.
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Oval Large and Standard Circles Large
Embellishment is a ribbon charms from Making Memories
Thanks for looking. Have a happy day.
