Cycling knickers for my Dad

I don't really do cards, well not your bog standard type anyway, I struggle with the concept of it being a card, so I usually tend to try and make something a little bit different. This was inspired by Sam's No Bugs piece that she posted on the Happy Daze Design Team page.I really loved the folded ATC she made, and I had these stamps in mind for my Dads Card, so it was all perfect really, my usual card angst was avoided and he ended up with a "card" he really liked... apparently he used to were cycling trousers very similar to these !!!!!

The stamps are  The Open Road plate from the Artisitic Stamper 

I am sharing this with Hel's Sunday Stamper  and Simon Say's Stamp and Show as this week it's show some Brown

Great card Carol, my OH would love it as he is 'older' and a very keen cyclist so would really appreciate it. Going to check out the stamps and also Sam's work.
