Dad UR 1 of-a-Kind!

Here is the card that I made for my kids to give to their dad for Father's Day.  They wanted a card that wasn't too "serious" and that defines who he is.  

I was drawn to this DP from Simple Stories which had the definition of the words Strong, Adventurous and Awesome printed on it.  This truly defines my husband and so half the work was already done for me.  :)

I added magic mesh, twine and a button to the left side and brads to the middle of the stars.  The letter stickers "dad" and "1 of-a-kind" (which is adhered with pop dots) are also from Simple Stories.  

I will enter this card into this week's Retro Sketches challenge #16.  Hope all the dads in your life had a great Father's Day!  :)
