Father's Day Card - Texture and Distressing!

This card is a little out of character for me.  I really didn't like the paper under the squares but I have now made two projects out of it and found that by stretching my imagination, I could make something a little artsy out of it! The card has some distressing and a lot of texture! I got the sketch from CPS Challenge #168.  I am also going to submit it to a Father's Day challenge on Ideas for Scrapbookers. If you haven't checked out that blog, you should really think about it. It is just filled with ideas!

card base: DCWV
patterned paper:  Glitz Designs
squares are from scraps but are embossed with either a Cuttlebug or Sizzix folder
stamps:  CTMH
ink:  Aged Mahogany Distress Ink from Tim Holtz
other:  sandpaper, staples

Don't forget about my blog candy!
Don't forget about my challenge post!
