DAD OF ALL TRADES

I made this card for my dad who has so many hobbies.  Including, painting, woodworking-he built a harp and taught himself how to play it.  He also runs 5 miles a day at 81 years old. His current passion is calligraphy. There is a lot of twine on this card.  I twirled it on to a pop-dot, braided it and tied it up.  I used sticker letters for the inside sentiment.
