Blessed Man

I popping in with one more Father's Day card.  Verve is closing down their Mojo Monday challenge (after 500!!) and I really wanted to play along this time.  So, I used all Verve products (well, almost) to create this card for my dad: 
I don't have a lot of masculine papers, but while looking for some, I came across this beautiful green/blue combo (the paper on the left) and knew I had to use it.  The damask paper, might be a little girly, but I think the simple layout and the navy blue help ground it and make it more masculine.  You have to look closely, but I stamped and embossed a row of little hearts along the navy blue banner.  And since they are both from Verve, the hearts in the stamp have the same style as the hearts in the border die I used, and then I used the cut outs from the die to accent the sentiment.
Here is a picture of the inside:
I finished the top off with the same damask paper I used on the outside, and I used the same heart stamp from the outside to accent the sentiment inside, which says "In your eyes I've seen God's love.  In your words I've heard His wisdom, Through your life I've found His grace."  Such a beautiful sentiment.  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps: Verve "Jeremiah 17:7" plain jane, "Borderline" heart strip, "Be Blessed" inside sentiment
Dies: Verve Border Trim Trio" heart border, "Flag It" banner; Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics A" rectangle
