Handmade Father's Day Card

Only a few days left to make that perfect handmade Father's Day card.  This weeks colourQ challenge features a great mix of colours.  The photo of the tie inspired me to keep the theme manly.  I went to the craft store today and I was trying to find a stamp that reminded me of things my father and I did together and then I saw the tricycle.  My father would push me on my tricycle before I learned to peddle and then he pushed me again when I learned to ride a bike.  When I started thinking about it, my father pushed me through a lot of things in my life.  So, the tricycle stamp came home with me.

Handmade Father's Day Card Supplies:  Navy cardstock, patterned paper by Carolees Creations (12915, Blue Scratch Dots), blue cardstock, lucky limeade cardstock by Stampin' Up!, white cardstock, tricycle stamp by Stampabilities (G1116), black dye ink by Stampabilities, Copic markers (B34, C5, E00), classic stampin' pad in lucky limeade (I water colored part of tricycle), paint brush, computer, printer, lucky limeade twine by Stampin' Up!, and foam tape.
