Father's Day Scene

I found it surprisingly hard to make this Father's Day card.  Last year Father's Day was on my Dad's birthday and we met for lunch, knowing that chances were it would be his last birthday.  Dad died in Spetember but I know my two teenage sons will still want cards without going to the shop and paying for them :) and of course DH still needs one for his Dad.  I think now I've made one the others will be easier... 

I used various Hobby Art SceneIt stamps to create a small picture which I'm quite pleased with.  I followed Sketch Saturday's layout, DP is Stampin' Up, I used a Martha Stewart punch and some garden twine.  The sentiment is Joanna Sheen.

This card is for the following challenges:
