FCCB Challenge #164 Father's Day

I have cheated with my Father's Day card for FCCB challenge this week !!
(No points for noticing it's a birthday card!!)
Technically it's not my week and the lovely Robin, boss lady and chief whip cracker may choose to chuck it out lol 
BUT 
I'm gonna share it anyway's !!

I spent rather a long time making the "Lincoln Treable's Dart Board" from many black and white circles cut with the George and Basic shapes Cricut cartridge
I heat embossed the edge of each of the white circles to make them look like the wires 
and stuck them on the black ones
I embossed thin strips of card and the numbers which I cut with the Artiste Cartridge 
I added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink "splats" and used a "beer" stain stamp as the background. The Birthday sentiment was a freebie from Do Crafts
I made my dart with a broken stem and Shane's own flight cut in half, then I moulded the dart with Martha Stewart Air Clay and let it dry in place before sticking it down 

Thank you for sharing my gate crashing card, I'm a tinsy winsy bit proud of it lol
Please pop over to FCCB and check out the real challenge cards made by the DT to celebrate Father's Day
