Cook One Up for Your Man

Metal, texture and masculine, those are the ingredients for this week's challenge at Cooking It Up With Katie.  With Father's Day just around the corner you can kill two birds with one stone by making a card for this week's challenge.    Of course you don't have to make a father's day card, any kind of masculine card will do.  
For this card I used a car image.  It reminds me of a car my mom had when we were kids.  We called it the "red devil".  It always seemed special, maybe because she won it in a raffle.  Maybe because it was a sharp looking car - red with the white detail in the fin.  Maybe it was just a magical time in life.  When you're a kid everything seems bigger and better, too bad that wears off as we grow up. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Crafty Secrets "Car Classics"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
paper - SU "Kraft" cs and yellow cs scrap; Close to My Heart "Route 66" dp
miscellaneous- copics; K & Co chipboard letters; mini brads; machine stitiching

Here's the challenges:
Coking It Up with Katie #97 - metal, texture and masculine
