Summer of 1970 fun!

I have a friend that her husband use to have a VW bus when he was in his twenties.  I thought this card would be perfect for a fun Father's Day card for him.  Maybe it'll bring back some great memories. 

As soon as I saw the TCP Tuesdsay #114 Sketch challenge I knew I was going to enter it.  Why?  Cuz I love the SU Top Note die cut.  My BFF bought it for me for my birfday.  She's the greatest.   Then I ran into the Delightful Color Inspiration DCI1 Challenge.  I loved the picture they are using for our inspiration and it went so perfect with the idea I had going.  I love those colors.  I love black and purple .  I wish I could tell you more about the card but nothing earth shattering.  Bazzill card stock, the stamp I bought from ABC Craft Store.  It's from Helz Cuppleditch called Flower Power Camper Van.  I've seen this stamp in a few cards and fell in love with it.  The flower and dots are stickers from Creative Imaginations.  I didn't take a picture of the inside but it also has a Top Note die cut in white and says " You're Groovy!"    Hahaha.  I love it.  I hope he does.
