Father's Day Card: MIM115, CFC100, DD#52

With Mother's Day (almost) officially over, I decided to start on some Father's Day cards. I've been wanting to try Papertrey's Make It Monday to emboss something other than paper, but just haven't had time until tonight.  We flew home a few days ago, and I've been cleaning, organizing, and unpacking ever since.  Try as I might, taking pictures late at night isn't the ideal time to photograph embossed felt.  But I promise if you look close, you can see the embossed diamonds. :) Oh, and just in case you're wondering, this isn't the regular felt.  It's the stiffened kind.   
I also used CAS-ual Friday's Top Ten Tic Tac Toe Challenge and Dynamic Duos Challenge #52 to make this card.  Hopefully a metallic pin (because it really is shiny in person...just looks dull in the photo) counts as bling on my masculine card because my three-in-a-row were kraft, bling, and emboss. Oh, and since you could pick any past challenge color combo for this week's Dynamic Duo's Challenge, I chose #36 which was Real Red and Basic Black.
Cardstock: PTI (kraft, stamper's select white, true black)
Other: Michael's (felt, pin), PTI (headline alphabet die, seeing stars dies), Robert's (cork), SU (texturz backgrounds #1)
