Happy Grandparent's Day ~ Take 2

A card for my Dad (from my son) for Grandparent's Day tomorrow.  
My previous post here is the card I made for my Mom.
I entering this one at CAS-ual Fridays for the embossing, 
CASology for the cue word "family," and at the 52 Card Pickup.
There is embossing on the silver and gold paper, 
as well as, on the main white layer.
 The inside is more decorated than the outside,
and note that my son had to sign his last name
(just in case his Grandpa wasn't sure which "Matt" 
was giving him a "Happy Grandparent's Day" card!)
 BTW, he only has one Grandson named "Matt."
