Dad - You're my Hero

I thought I'd try something a little bit different today.  Cricut Design Space has several of their cut and go style cards free for the making right now so I figured why not make one.  After all they're quick and easy and who doesn't like to have one or two of those in their stash?  And since Father's Day is this weekend I chose this "Dad" card from the Simple Holiday Cards collection.
 
After cutting out the card I cut a piece of light grey cardstock to use as my backing.  But then I decided I wanted to a little color to the card as well.  Then the idea to turn dad's tie into a shaker hit me.  Using pieces from the Shine Bright pack of sequins from Craftin Desert Divas I accomplished my goal.
 
I also decided to add a stamped sentiment on the outside of my card.  This one is from the Calling All Superheroes stamp set, also from Craftin Desert Divas.
 
And now I'm off to enter this card in to the following challenges:
 
Craftin Desert Divas - Father's Day - Ends June 21st
 
Die Cuttin Divas - Masculine Theme - Ends June 22nd
 
DL Art - For a Man or Boy - Ends June 24th
