Daddy's Birthday

Monday was my father's birthday.  He's really big on nature, so I think he will like this card.  His summer home is in Montana, so he gets to see this view a lot!

I really like how the textured background looks like tree bark. ;-)  Kinda keeps with the whole natural feel, don't you think?
