A Father's Day Moose

Moose-Blessings-2

Hello everyone! I hope you had a very happy and blessed Easter!!! We enjoyed good times with our family, and also celebrated our granddaughter's 10th birthday! We have so much to be thankful for!

Today I have a masculine card to share. This card was made using this month's Our Daily Bread designs Fathers Day set, and Birch Background. I also used a Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio 3 and Label 13 to cut my main image. I watercolored this image, doodled the design to the edge of the panel and then from a second stamping, I cut out a second moose to pop up, and a few pieces of grass and added flower soft to the grass and the sand along the shore. The base is Bazzill, the brown mat is Papertrey Dark Chocolate, and the ribbon is May Arts Faux Suede. For the background, I stamped the birch bg and then used SU! Markers to give a little color to it. Well that's my quick card for tonight! Hope your week ahead is fabulous!!!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - One for the Boys, Craft Your Passion - Show us your layers, Stamp-N-Doodle - Masculine, Stamping Scrapping Central - Anything Goes, The Outlawz - Sentiment required - Anything Goes, Cheerful Stamp Pad - #16 There is a man in my life, Corrosive Challenges - Animals, One Stitch At A Time - Father's Day or Sports, One Stop Craft - Chocolate - Images or Colour, Fun with Shapes & More - must include die cut/punch - #81: Animals, Inspire Me Fridays - Anything goes, Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything goes, Crafty Purple Frog - 2 Texture & ribbon, Meljens Designs - Masculine.

Wow! Those birch trees are so realistic. They remind me of growing up in CT as a child. I loved them. This card is wonderful. So much nature! It is a wonderful masculine card, I could also see it going to any nature loving woman.

Thank you for sharing this card. It is great!
