You Rock Grandpa {RCC58}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!!

I have a card to share with you for this week's challenge at The Ribbon Carousel Blog, RCC58, Heavy Metal!  SO fun!  We'd love you to play along...and metal on your card will do!

For this challenge I made my Dad's Father's Day card.  My Dad is cool...seriously.  He rides a Harley and every weekend rides over...my girls always scream "Grandpa" every time they hear a motorcycle go by!  I am happy to report, he LOVED this card!  

I started with the new Masculine Graphic Tee set and Masculine Graphic Die-Namics and cut the Tee out of Black cardstock.  I stamped "You Rock Grandpa" (love that font!) in Versamark and then embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder.  LOVE the way that looks!!

All of the patterned paper I have had in my stash FOREVER.  I think I got it at Michaels, and it's pretty much my go to paper when making a card for my dad.  I popped up the tee shirt onto panels cut with the Circle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics.  I added a trio of panels cut with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics.  I really love these...can you tell (grin)?  Here is a closeup of the Tee:

For my "Heavy Metal" accent, I added brushed silver brads to the top of the Fishtail Flags and three ribbon tabs using Vintage Black Seam Binding (LOVE) to which I added a brushed silver brad to the center of each.  Here is a closeup: 

On the inside I added more Fishtails, as well as a circle where I embossed "#1".  I added even more brads to the inside.

Here is a closeup of the inside detail:

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
