Father's Day Card Using Gram and Gramps Set

Today's project is a Father's Day card for my FIL, from my son.  I used Scrappy Dew's Gram and Gramps Set. My children have been very fortunate to know all their Grandparents and Great Grandparents, except my youngest. 
My father passed away when he was only 54 (my youngest son was 3, now 12), it was really so unexpected. He had not been feeling well and passed in his sleep. He rode Motorcycles all his life since he was a teenager.  I always knew his was coming to visit me, by the sound of his Harley. LOL I had a hard time making this card, just wish he was here. I miss him terribly. I would have had to make a different type of card for my Dad, because he was a cool Grandpa. LOL Something with a Harley!

The cut flowers and leaves are from Birds Cards The teal flowers are Recollections Jar flowers. I also applied some Stickles to the center of them. I think Stickles are my go to item when crafting. I use them for everything. LOL
This is the inside tag. I used Porky's font, which resembles a child like font. I Split the letters in MTC and then nudged them close to each other and did a Weld. I also created a Shadow layer, nudged each line close together and then Welded again. I used my Black Cat to cut the letters. They finally look like they are suppose to!!
To create my project, I used the Ancestry paper stack by K&CoMPANY  Plus, some additional colored cardstock by Recollections and Bazzill. Inked and chalked some of my edges and pieces.
This is the back of my card. I used Penny Duncan's Shaplie files. 

 I hope you enjoyed my project and thanks for looking!
