A Touch Of Nostalgia

I made this card late last week, and when we went shopping I saw a man in the supermarket with this very thing on his T Shirt, so I felt as if I may have been barking up the right tree for once!

I've made this as a Father's Day card for a friend to give to her dad.  I gave her three to choose from and this is the one she picked.   The VW camper van is from Little Claire's Designs, and as their Challenge No. 9 is to make a card for a man, I thought I'd enter this one.  It's a digi image, wonderfully clear and a pleasure to colour in. The papers are from MME, which I've had for ages.  The ribbon is from my ever growing collection (a girl can never have too much ribbon in my opinion!) I printed out the Happy Father's Day sentiment on my computer, then decided to stamp over it with my blank ticket sentiment from Bunny Zoe's Crafts.  It's rubber, so of course I can't see through it, so I decided it didn't matter if I missed, I'd try again with something else, but lo and behold, it was spot on!  I coloured the camper van with Promarkers, using, amongst other things, Blush and Ivory, which are normally for skin tones, but they worked perfectly on here.  I'm quite pleased with the result and it gives me a thrill of pleasure to know that someone will be opening a card I've made on Father's Day.
