Dad's Card...

I thought it was about time I did another post on here as it was looking a bit neglected and there is also a couple of challenges that I can actually enter my card into.  I have been doing some crafty stuff; making a braid to attach the scoring tool to my Hougie Board (so it doesn't get lost in the mess) and also doing some crochet.
Anyway, here is the card.  Apologies for the photo and background as I quickly took it on my phone last week before I sent it and forgot to take one with the big camera. Then I spent 3 hrs this afternoon trying to upload it, thought it was cos I'd taken it with said phone so ended up taking a pic of the laptop screen with the better camera so the quality isn't good.

I used the Hougie to score the diamond card.  Background paper was Funky Vintage from Dovecraft. The images were stamped onto card using Vintage Photo and Faded Jeans and coloured using a waterbrush.  The background was lightly stamped with some of the images and edges inked in same colours. The 'Dad' was stamped using an alphabet set from See D's.

 I would like to enter this into;
