Happy Father's Day card

Here is the card I have made for my Dad for Father's Day. I have had to make it now as he lives in France and I want to make sure he gets it in time. Its a step card but with a whole front panel. I started off with a piece of card at 6 inches by 11 inches and cut a line 1 inch in from both sides between1 inch mark and 6.5 inch mark and then scored at 1 inch, 2 inch, and 6.5 inch on both sides and only scored in the centre of the card at 5.5 inches only, hope that makes sense.

The image is a Lili of the valley stamp which I have coloured in with Promarkers. I have edged the image and papers with Glitterations. I have printed some Pink Petticoat pinstripes backing paper and some dotty backing paper both in Air force blue and edged with the Glitterations . I have added a metal charm Hammer to the image before sticking down onto the main card. I have then used Craftwork Cards Candi and stuck onto card with Pinflair.
