Do you know a good Mechanic?

. . . I do and it's my Son-in-Law, Frank!
Hello Friends!
Today I have a card to share with you that I think I'll send along to my SIL for Father's Day.
He's a fabulous father to my grandchildren and I just want him to know that it's noticed!  Plus he's a 'car guy' through and through so this will be perfect!

My image and sentiment come from the Crafty Secrets Digital Car Classics set.
I used some Paper Pizazz plaid design paper from the background as well as embossed a sheet of silver metallic paper with a Sizzix embossing folder to create the metal plating panel. 

I hope you'll pop over to Crafty Secrets and check out all the fabulous images, papers, stickers and so much more that is available for purchase at a VERY REASONABLE price.  SO MANY category themes ... I'm sure you'll find exactly what you're looking for!

Here are a few challenges I'd like to enter into today!

I have landscapers coming to help clean up my flower beds & mulch today so I'd better get the mowing done before they show up (or it rains! lol)

Of course I love that image and the metallic plate! I think I prefer the colours you used on your card than the one I did. For sentimental reasons I was stuck with a salmon car. I love that you can enlarge this image with the new digital set, it was hardly noticeable in its original size

OMG! Dar, this card is fabulous on so many levels! The "steel" accent plays perfectly with the awesome masculine plaid background, and the retro colors you chose for the image are just perfect! It is just so nostalgic and masculine and FUN! Wowsers!
