Fathers Day card

Hello everyone. Can you believe it is Sunday already....??? Gosh the weekend just goes too quickly. So being Sunday that means I must show you my DT card for Magnolia Down Under with a theme/challenge this fortnight of a Fathers Day card. Here in Australia we celebrate Fathers Day in September so this will be good for my hubby - who even asked if it was for him. LOL. Maybe.
I actually struggled with this one a little bit as I didn't want the card to be too cute. I wanted to make a card that I would give to either my Dad or hubby. So I got my Magnolia fence and trees and stamped away with Vintage Sepia and sponged the ink over the images. It worked out better than my original idea (won't tell you about the one).

Products: Magnolia stamps; Kaisercraft DP; Versafine Vintage Sepia ink; nesties; computer (for sentiment); button; natural thread.

Tracey, gorgeous card. I love the vintage look of your card. Those DP's are lovely, especially like the one with the swirls--love blue and brown combo. Wonderfully distressing job.

This is a lovely vintage-y, masculine card. This challenge was a little tricky, but I think you did an awesome job with it :)
