Wooo loves you?

This card took so much longer than I originally intended, but I really like the outcome.  Specially since I am going to give it to my husband's grandfather and his wife.  The grandfather is was a carpenter so the woodgrain touches will be perfect for him.  I created the wood planks with my scorepal, creamy caramel, brown and white craft ink.  I think splitcoaststampers has a tutorial for it.  I also created the frame for my image by "mitering" the corners of the top and bottom strips of paper.  And lastly, I made the "rickrack" strips with a tutorial I found on Pinterest.  You use a scalloped punch, flip the paper over and punch again with the scallops lined up opposite the first punching.
