Father's Day for the Pals Paper Arts.....

Hello everyone: Well, when I saw this sketch this morning on the Pals Paper Arts blog, I had to sit back and kind of study it a bit to be able to think what I was going to do to with it.  Then I thought that, Father's Day is just around the corner and I was going to make some cards anyway so why not use this fabulous, never seen before, challenging sketch Ms. Nicole Watt provided for us today.
This is my card.
It's always challenging for me to create masculine cards, I tend to buy flower stamps and cute critter stamps, romantic stamps but I have to confess I have very few sets with beautiful images like this one on the SU Wet Lands that fortunately and happily is being carried over in the new catalog, this is truly a must have set for masculine cards .  Another of the difficult parts of making this type of cards is that they can't really be embellished to much, (that's just me) maybe a unassuming ribbon and bow, or a bit, just a bit of bling?? I just chose to add neither, instead I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and placed a couple of Candy Dots on the edges.  I embossed the Pistachio Pudding panel behind the image with the lovely (and on the retire list) Argyle Embossing Folder, just to give it texture, I love the way it looks.
Here is the sketch that inspire my card. I want to thank you for visiting today, I appreciate your comments immensely. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.  Have a fabulous day.
Maria.
