Taylored Expressions - Dad Tools

Today, I have the card made from my Dad's 90th birthday!  I used a stamp from Taylored Expressions called "Dad Tools".  He loved tools and could fix anything back in the day.  He also did a lot of woodworking after retiring.  The 3 patterned papers are from Simple Stories Aweso{me} paper pad.

I stamped "Dad" on a piece of Kraft and Xpress It cardstock with Mementos black ink.  The kraft cardstock was cut with a nestabilities die, then stamped with a woodgrain stamp (A|Muse) using dark chocolate (PTI) ink.    
I colored the "Dad" stamped on the white XPress It cardstock with Copic markers and cut each tool out them paper pieced them on the woodgrain base. The image was matted with PTI Enchanted Evening cardstock and screw head snaps were added in each corner.

Supplies --
Stamp: Taylored Expressions "Dad Tools", A|Muse woodgrain background
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories Aweso{me}
Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, Memento Black
Cardstock: PTI Enchanted Evening, Kraft
