Perfectly Rustic Masculine

So its a new challenge today over at Perfectly Rustic - Masculine. I find masculine cards challenging; but in a good way - they make me think outside the box when it comes to embellishing as I can't just reach for flowers.

I thought I would get in early and make this one up for father's day for my husband, although this image from Karen's Doodles doesn't exactly represent us (we only have two kids and my daughter is older than my son) I couldn't resist the expression on the father's face.
