Cricut Cardz Challenge-"I'm so glad, you're my Dad!"

This is my last Father's Day card for this year. I whipped this one up Saturday morning. I had to work that night and there is a young lady at work that I wanted to make a card for her to give to her Dad. Her Dad raised her, her brother and sister. One of the things that she loves to do is watch football with him. She talks about it every football season. So that is what I built my card upon. It is 6x6. Using the Wrap It Up cartridge I cut the phrase feature that goes with the football. It is the last item in the booklet. Sorry, I don't have a page number for you. I also cut the shift feature. Both were cut at 4 inches. The bottom layer (so to speak) has the football and the top layer has the seam and the ends of the football and an overlay (that's what I call them) for the phrase itself. I ran the football part through my Cuttlebug using the Tiny Mosaic embossing folder. I placed my piece with the football in the bottom corner and the phrase part hanging out of the folder. I think it turned out pretty good doing it that way. Then I glued the top layer down. I did not do any popping on this card because the phrase was to thin. The bg designer paper is from DCWV-The Guy Stack. Then I dug through my button jar until I found three buttons that I liked together. I put those on with glue dots. On the inside I used a Mary-Cardz TV Stamps stamp. It is from the Father's Day set.
I will be entering my card into the Cricut Cardz Challenge-#110. Make a card for Father's Day using any cartridge(s) and using any colors you'd like.
And she loved the card!! Hope ya'll like it!!!! :)

Very cool! The stitch lines on the sentiment make it look like timeless twine!
