Looking up to Dad

I found a great quote that's just right for Peter to give on a card for Steve for Father's Day. He really makes the most of being taller than his Dad - this should bring him down a size or two! The girls told me today that if they're in his way, he just picks them up and places them elsewhere!
An atc made into a card for the Saturday Workout challenge on charms. I drew streaks with the dabber and sponged ink on top. Then I spritzed a tissue with water and wiped off the ink from the streaks. I dabbed some more to age the background. The knitting wool was the colour inspiration for this - the first time I've used it.
