Sentimental Sundays Challenge - Father's Day DT Card

Sorry for the lateness!! I did have it scheduled and just got back from Hols to find it hasn't been posted but oh well!

Here is my card for this week's challenge over at Sentimental Sundays! The theme this week is Father's Day or for a male whichever you prefer!

We have two challenge sponsors this week. First, is the awesomely talented Melissa Jenkins of Mel Jen's Designs. The winner will receive 4 digis of their choice from the Mel Jen's Designs store.

Our second sponsor is the marvelous Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. This prize will be four INDIVIDUAL sentiment sets from the Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection. If you like the weekly freebies offered here, please visit the store to see even more! We also offer custom digital designs at an affordable price with tutorials on how to use them.

I thought i would go CAS for a change and use the sentiment as the focus of the card which i haven't done before but i think it looks ok! I Can't decide if this is for my Dad or FIL i may just have to make a duplicate as i love this sentiment!
