Say Happy Father's Day with a little Bling

Say Happy Father's Day with a little Bling
In the States, it is getting close to Father's Day. My husband thinks that because we live here now, he is entitled to Father's Day both in America AND Australia. Such a shame that Mother's Day is the same date in both countries. 

Anyway, we all know that Dads are not into the florals and frills like us Mums, but I still wanted to make some use of Bella! bling this month, while creating a masculine card. To achieve this I have used black rhinestones. They make a bold statement on a male card without all the glitz and sparkle. You'll also notice that I chose a geometric shape rather than a floral flourish. 
I kept the rest of the card quite simple (for my usual style) to allow the rhinestones to do all the work. I used a combination of thick twine and wood veneers to add some grungy texture. I teamed this with a kraft base and also tore and distressed my paper edges to add to the grungy feel. 
The papers I have used are actually from the Joyeaux Noel Christmas line. By selectively choosing appropriate colours and patterns, it worked perfectly for my male card.  The key die cuts are from the Family mini kit from a while back. 
Here's hoping that the Dad in our family will love it.
