Father's Day Card #1

Are you ready for Father's Day this Sunday?  I've gotten started on my cards and gifts by modifying the Retro Sketches sketch #15 and using the Close To My Heart Adventure USA stamp set as the starting point for this Father's Day card for my dad.  He and my mom love to travel!  (Mom, don't show him this post, okay?  He'll have to wait until Sunday.)
I'm also linking it up to this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenges and Use It Tuesday's Father's Day challenges.  I think this also fits the Charisma Cardz challenge #22, travel.  From my stash, I used scraps from the CTMH Cruisin' paper pack and finally inked up my Adventure USA stamp set.  I can't wait to play more with this stamp set!  (I've got some fun projects in mind, plus a great travel scrapbook class in late July planned.)  I also used Grey Wool, Black, and Cranberry inks, plus the cool new CTMH cork shapes and baker's twine.  The "Happy Father's Day" sentiments came from the Tag the Occasion stamp set, which will be retiring at the end of July.

If you'd like to check out and/or purchase the products I used, be sure to visit my website. ;)  Happy stamping and paper crafting those Father's Day projects!  I've got some more up my sleeve, so be sure to come back.  Thanks!
