Father's Day Card

With Father's day coming up I thought I would make a card for my father (still need to do my husbands card, hehe).  I wanted a masculine card but something that was not just a picture of a man in a suit, elegant style as it is my father who is older and not a man with little kids giving him the card (I was trying to stay away from cute).  I then remembered my Lost and Found papers from My Mind's Eye, and though perfect, they just scream masculine!!

The papers already had the word happy on it, so I just added Father's Day in little letters (like in my tutorial here) below to capture the effect of the card.
