Father's Day/For a Male

Simon Says Stamp's challenge is Father's Day or For a Male. I've made a grungy male card for my nephew's birthday so killing two birds with one stone. Thanks for these challenges, I'm well ahead with my birthday cards now. It's a large white square card by Craft UK. The backing paper is from Costco and the Creative Expressions embossed panel is a piece of packing cardboard. It was distressed with three of Rangers' Distress Inks. The lock and Dream panel are from Create and Craft. The tag is from our local Post Office! I distressed that as well - I was in a grungy mood seeing that you mentioned Tim Holtz. I've used a Tim Holtz sentiment tag and one of his ornate book plates.  James can take the card to pieces if he doesn't want to keep it and he can use the book plate and then the tag as a key ring.
