And CAS110 challenge was something out of the box, which my anchor and log are, but I'm not sure its so CAS, it started out that way, and grew...oops
This also started out to be a masculine card...hope I didn't get it to fancy for a man card?
thanks for the challenges...

What wonderful detail and sparkle...yet still definitely masculine! And that verse is fabulous. Must get that for myself, as it's so useful for so many people in my life who need that reminder...including myself! I really like how you added the birds in a visual triangle, too.

That's not too fancy for a masculine card at all. That's the folder I was going to use :D till I remembered the other technique, which made something a bit more suitable for biker gear. But I love the look this folder gives for faux leather.
