Retro Daddy card

This card was made for the Retro Daddy Simply Sunday challenge at 'Getting Cricky' with KAndrew. She said we could use anything, so I did. I found the image on a blog that has vintage images. Naturally I didn't write down the blog address, sorry about that. The card is 5 1/2" x 4". I printed the image (about 3"x4") on white cardstock and inked the edges with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink. The circle was the center from a card I cut on my Cricut (from the Wildcard cartridge, I think). The background paper is from the DCWV Natural matstack. I love that stack and will probably end up getting another one next time I go to JoAnn's. The brads are from my stash, most likely from JoAnn's. (Our local store closed about 5 years ago and I got tons of that type of stuff during their sale.) The corners of the picture were rounded with my Corner Chomper. I printed the sentiment on my computer and inked as well. I should have added "shape and" in the top part but it was too late by the time I thought about it. Oh well, oops... I actually put a little paper on the inside with the printed sentiment.
