Starting Me Out on the Right Foot!

Hi, it's me again!

Today I made a Father's Day Card using Crackerbox Palace Stamps.  Happy Feet-Lg. was cut out to separate it from the frame.  Since the image is Retro, I used DP that carried that same feel.  The free font I used is a Retro Style font called Keep On Truckin'  The burlap I used was rubbed Glossy Accents around the edge to prevent it from unraveling.   An arrow from Close to My Heart covered with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

If you've never heard of Keep on Truckin' or underground comics, you didn't live in the late 60's/early 70's.  Therefore I've attached the original logo along with an explanation of the origin of Keep On Truckin'

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
