Have a Great Birthday Dad

You will see from my post yesterday I recently  bought the Crafter's Companion new CD called "Flights of Fantasy" that had artwork on it by the very talented Morgan Fitzsimon.  There are lots of fantasy images eg fairies, dragons, mermaids, unicorns but then there are some stunning images like these two birds.  This is a birthday card I have made for my eldest son to give to his dad for his birthday.

I printed off these beautiful birds image three times so I could decoupage the image.  I used backing papers from my stash.  Last week-end when I quickly visited Colemans Warehouse for some pick-and-mix boxes of card I was offered a free Die'sire geometric motif embossing folder.  Strange but this one had been on my wish list for a while as I thought it would be perfect for male cards especially.  I also used my Crafter's Companion hessian embossing folder and brushed both of these pieces of embossed card with a brown Pan Pastel.

I have finished the card off with a sentiment off the computer, flowers made from the backing paper, brads, ribbon and pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
