I used "Father's Day" for my card
this is a great year round set for your dad!

 A2 card with Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate
got the stamp at Hobby Lobby it's from Clear Stamps 
a Prima company sorry that's the only name on it
But I just fell in love with it the minute I saw it.
Something about it reminded me of my dad
I stamped it with memento tuxedo black and used copic markers 
Used an oval spellbinders die and placed it over the oval
and inked with Tim Holtz antique linen
the little hook is form an old earring I lost the mate to I just cut with
a pair of pliers.

added this after looking a the card for a week
just thought it need a little somethin extra
a little twine and a button

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
