Never Out of Style

My Dad loves old cars.  And being a teenager in the 50s, this was perfect for him.  This is the card I made for him for Father's Day.  Here is how it was made!

Size:  5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Card Stock and Glitter Paper:  Recollections, DCWV
Patterned Papers:  DCWV
Star:  George Cricut cartridge cut at 3 3/4" and embossed with Cuttlebug
Car:  Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge cut at 3"
Border Punches:  Along the bottom -- Fiskars; behind car and star -- Martha Stewart
Pearls:  Queen & Co.
Sentiment:  Computer generated and cut with a Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fleur de Lis die.
Inside sentiment:  "You'll never go out of style.  Happy Father's Day.  We love you more than you know."

Thanks for looking, and for your comments.  (And please don't forget to say a prayer for my son-in-law's family.  He is going back to work today.  That will be tough without his Dad.)
