Picking You for My Hero Swing Card

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 270 - Mambo Suede. Also since I did not get to play yesturday this is for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 272 - Flip Flop Swing Cards. I have not made one of these in eaons. Thanks Holly for the swing back in time, it was fun. I really think men get slighted sometimes with flowers as the norm is NO flowers on a masculine card but some men are confident enough in thier masculinety that they love flowers so I decided to turn a Mother's Day image into a Father's Day card. I used Picking You for my image and My Hero for my sentiment both are from the digital line over at TREEHOUSE STAMPS. I colored the image with copics. I used some woodgrain dp on my soft suede cs base for dessert. My image and sentiment are matted on dark brown.
This is a view of the card stretched out:

This is a view of the card closed as it would be received:

I did resist the temptation to add some embellishments as I felt like that might be a bit too far. LOL. Don't want to push my luck, teehee. Hope you like it.
