Dad-a special guy

This card made Top 3 over at Anyone for Anya and Friends.
Thanks so much!
Updated on 12June2011

Hi all, here is a card with a male theme,yep a Father's Day Card or a card for Dad.
I decided to use Kraft Paper and Cosmo Cricket -Joy Ride.
Had Joy Ride for sometime, I like the paper design but didn't have a chance to use it!
Now I have a chance to use it for this card.
Love the cars!
I used Spellbinders Lables21 die,and Quickutz  Diesel Alphabet die for DAD.
I am using The Greeting Farms stamps, Tank's body and My Guy Ian 's head .( Sending in for TGF Body snatcher's Challenge). I love changing the heads with different body's, it's like playing paper doll dress up!
The image turn out rather cute!

As for the inside of the card,I layered the 3 DP, stamped  Inkadinkado's Thanks
 on a white cardstock cut out ,and add it on.
Close-up of Ian in colour pencils
(Looks like the boy on the cover has grown up!)

On the opposite side I have stamped ( normal size) Ian and coloured with carand'ache colour pencils.
Add a stripe of PD,cut out a white cardstock punched the corners and stick it on.
Then add faux white stitches around it.

Would like to send this card for the following Challenges
