Retro Dad

When I looked at this week's challenge on Simply Stampin I wasn't sure what to do with it.  I love all those colours but hadn't thought of putting them together.  Then I remembered a piece of pop art I'd seen somewhere and the idea came together.  I wanted a very retro feel and the concentric circles and VW camper stamp were perfect.  I have to admit that only the cardstock and sentiment are from SU, which is unusual for me.  I used whisper white card and stamped the VW all over it in Island Indigo, then layered the die cut circles and hoops.  I stamped the VW again, in Real Red and Indigo Island and cut them out and used foam pads to make them stand out.  The sentiment is stamped and clear embossed, again in Island Indigo. I hope that some young at heart dad would be pleased to get this card on Fathers' Day, next month.
