All Mixed Up - Creation #3

For creation #3 with the "All Mixed Up" cartridge I made a Father's Day card.  I needed three this year: one for my dad, one for my father-in-law, and one for my grandfather.  I had two in my stash, so this is the third.
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used a white pre-made card by DCWV for the card base.  I cut some argyle cardstock at 5 3/8"x4 1/8."  The argyle cardstock is from The  Kidlet Stack by DCWV. 
I stamped my image on a piece of white cardstock, cut at 3"x2 3/4."  I cut a red mat at 3 1/8"x2 7/8" and covered the edges with red glitter.  I cut a second mat from tan cardstock, cut at 3 1/4"x3" and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger.  I then added the sentiment, which is from Scrappy Moms Stamps.  The dog is stamped in sahara sand ink and the sentiment in pearlescent poppy ink, both by Tsukineko.
The blocks that spell out "dad" were cut from "All Mixed Up."  They were cut at 3/4" using the square feature.  I added white brads to the corners and adhered them to the card with foam tape.  I then filled in the letters with x-mas red Stickles.
I made this card to enter in these challenges:
