Father's Day 2012

Hi Friends,
Getting ready for Father's Day weekend? I am. I have a card to share today that I made for my Hubby. I kept a few challenges is mind while choosing the papers and such.
The starting point was the digital tag image that is the focal point. It is from The House Across The Bay Etsy store which I won at the Papercraft Star Challenge blog.

I matched some masculine style K&Co papers to the image to get a western feel. I thought some metal brads and twine would add some male mojo too! The last element is the sentiment die cut stamped with my new Inky Antics stamp set. I think it resembles a belt buckle. :)

I am submitting to the following challenges:
Flourishes173-Father's Day
Papercraft Star 101-Father's Day
Do you stack up-For Man or Boy
The Kraft Journal-Cards for Him
