Dies R Us June Challenge(Team A)-"One For the Boys/Father's Day"

Hi Friends!
It's time once again for Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme this month for Team A is "One For the Boys/Father's Day"! Dust off those dies and have fun making a masculine card.  You have until June 13th to enter.  The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Dies R Us store!  Last month we had lots and lots of entries...116...yeah!:-)  So, come on over and join in on the fun!

The above card is for my husband for Father's Day.  I just love the sentiment!  My son told me not too long ago that he very much admires his father for his integrity.  As my son gets older, he appreciates us more.  Yes, it's finally!

For my card, I started with a black card base.  It was then paired with silver and diamond background paper.  I stamped the car image onto a white die cut from Spellbinders(Labels-2).  I colored the image with distress markers and copics.  I added mini gears from Memory Box Dies.  The star border at top and majestic border along the left side of the card are from Taylored Expressions.  Button and twine to finish off the card.

The dies listed above can be purchased at the Dies R Us Store.
And, here is the list of dies that I used today...
