Happy Father's Day

Have you ever made a card and everything just fell into place and turned out better than you ever expected?  Well, I am not the best at "guy cards", but I have to say that this has to be the best "guy card" I have ever created.   I absolutely love this "Quiet Sunset" digi by D2D and couldn't wait to color it up with my colored pencils and gamisol.  I did use Copics on the boat.  How about that great "woodgrain technique" that I learned today on Stamp TV?  Awesome and so masculine!!  I knew it would be perfect for this card.    I added some eyelets and jute since I knew I could add any bows or flowers.  I hope this will give you some inspiration for Father's Day next month.
