Father's Day card for my stepdad (for VLV challenge)

For the Viva la Verve! June week 1 sketch challenge:
I made this father's day card for my stepdad using the largest tree in Unity's Bella Trees set and the sentiment from Verve's Happy Phrases set.  The sentiment is cut with Verve's Charming Banner dies.  The tree is silhouette cut and mounted on a Spellbinder's oval and scallop oval.  Some paper piercing and flat-backed pearls.
The tree paper is Basic Grey Pyrus, and the orange and blue-green papers are MME Lime Twist.
I'm not sure why, but I've come to use either stars or trees/plants (not flowers) for male cards.  I'm stumped for what other images are masculine enough otherwise.  I don't know that I've ever really made a conscious choice that stars are masculine.  And I'm sure there are plenty of feminine plants and trees.  But it works for me.  
Thanks for looking!
