Father's Day 2013

Summer is here, the warm weather (or really warm weather in California) is finally here and it is time to give a shout out to all fathers!  I wanted to make my father a card that would appeal to the sports fan in him - no flowers for him. 

I have never colored grey hair before, and I found the color combo I used during a search online.  I think it looks too blue with the blue and red paper combo, so I will try a different combo next time.  I paper pieced the shirt, and cut off the sleeves to make a vest and t-shirt combo for a little more of a dad look.   Then I finished up the card with white faux stitching on both the chair and the postage stamp die cut.
