Good morning!
Today starts a new challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!!!
Since this month is Father's Day month, ODBD has some new designs out that just shouts out DAD!
I've used the new release tools, pegboard and "man" sentiments.

It's a color challenge and the above photo is what you can choose from, use 3 or more colors in your design.
ODBD stamps used: Good Man
I started out by die cutting the tools, nuts,bolts, screws, nails, two Antique Labels and hooks with silver mat paper.  I rubbed them with some antiquing medium called Metallic Rub-Ons.  I then die cut the tools again with an orange color for the handles and brown and black for hammer and saw. Pieced them together and hung them on the pegboard I die cut from a brownish orange color.
For my base I used the Vintage Ephemera paper, distressed the edges and then used some embossing fluid and heavy embossing powder on the edges and in ward about 1/2" or so. I black embossed the sentiment and added the nuts and bolts  then mounted on top of the twine.
I distressed the dark brown panel and then glued them together and wrapped with twine. I added the screws and nails to the top of the twine. For the inside I black embossed the sentiment and added the nuts and bolts.  The piece of Ephemera background paper I cut off to make the card an A2 size, I placed inside along with my sentiment.

Our Father in heaven is the best example of a father that there is, isn't He.  He is always loving and kind and provides all that we need. He guides us and guards us and gives us life. We are protected in His hands, we can trust Him.  No one can take us out of His hands.  The world may hate us and even kill us but we are eternally His.  This earth is not our home, we are just passing through.  This life is an instant compared with eternity...think about that! 
Sometimes we moan and complain about trivial things but Our Father gives us what we truly need, He loves us beyond measure and He so deserves to be loved in return.  I will love You oh Lord, I will praise Your name in the heavens. Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable. The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy.  The Lord is good to all and His tender mercies are over all His works.  From the Psalms.

Robin, what a fabulous masculine card for Father's Day! I think your tools are so life-like and wonderful on the pegboard!! I remember my dad had his tools on a peg board with a tool for its own place! Beautifully done sweet friend! Hugs!
