Birthday card for Dad

Hi everyone! Gosh have I missed making cards! This is a birthday card for my Dad.  Male cards are always a little tough..ugh.  I haven't been totally stagnant these past few months.  Working on projects around the house and researching different aspects of digital art and card making.  For instance, I read that a card with a "visual triangle" is pleasing to the eye and provides balance.  I am sure you all knew that, so in this card I tried the whole triangle thing.  
Next Monday I am taking my first photo shop class and I am so excited.  I hope to eventually make my own papers and kits and learn about shading and color.  I am hoping a lot of what I learn will also apply to Copic and Prismacolor Pencil coloring and shading.
I am entering this card into the following challenges ( I know it's a long list but c'mon it's been 3 months since my last card!) However, if anyone is offended by my number of challenges, please do not feel obligated to comment, even if you are on a DT.
