I was looking for something that would work with these inspiration challenges, and saw this piece that I had saved - I think it was from some ad - I thought it looked good for a masculine card - I am always in favor of recycling when I can!  I don't need a card for father, but this should work for any male - a great verse for a faithful man.  It comes from ODB "Faith" - available at Classy Cards n Such.  The bird is Cheery Lynn - and it attracted the attention of DH!  I added part of a sunburst stencil (Studio 490) on Kraft cs.

A lovely card for a guy! That is such a pretty sunset and your stenciling of the rays above the photo is a very clever idea. Your bird adds the perfect embellishment and I love your sentiment too. Thank you so much for playing along with us at Sketch Saturday this week. Hugs, Lesley
