Wednesday Inspiration with Great Impressions Stamps

Father's Day is less than two weeks away.  
Do you have your cards ready?  
If not, when you have one finished, we'd love to see it in this month's Masculine challenge at Great Impressions Stamps.  This happy Farm Tractor (F497) stamp is perfect for a guy card.   Pair it with the Happy Dad's Day(D389) sentiment stamp and you're in business.
After coloring the image with markers and watercolor pencils, I used hexagon dies to cut it and a matching frame.  The framed image is popped onto the embossed card base.  Fussy cutting around the sentiment gives it bit of extra interest.  Three strands of knotted baker's twine and a few metal embellishments finish off this card.
