I made this for the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs. This week’s challenge is to make a masculine card or one for Father’s Day. The ODBD sets I used are You Will Find Refuge and Grow in Grace. I always struggle with masculine cards, but I found great joy in making this one for our young mission pastor, John. We get to have lunch with him most Mondays, and he has been a dear friend and encouragement to my husband and me. He continues to remind us that we all can grow in grace.

Cheryl, your card is surely going to be cherished by your friend, John. This masculine card seems to be a natural for you; just full of rich color and texture. I really love the wonderful shading of the sky around the bird. Well done !
