Owl Fathers Day Card

This card is for my Dad for Fathers day. He loves Owls so I thought my new Owl punch from Stampin up would be perfect to use on his card.

I made it one evening in the terrible light in our living room In daylight the following day it looked greener than I had first thought. I would have used a different backing paper if I was making it again, not that I ever make the same card twice. I'm sure he'll like it though.

I used a Stampin up Owl punch, papers from my stash (I bought the Owl paper about 18 months go from a NEC craft show and finally found a use for The Owl charm is from a Trimmie friend (thanks Mia). I've added some brown spotty ribbon from my stash and some gems my Mum gave me last weekend (thanks Mum). The Dad letter are rub ons and I've stamped 'happy fathers day' on the die cut heart.

I'd like to enter this into challenges at:
Come and get it challenges - Fathers Day
