One For The Guys

Good Morning all,
The weeks are flying in aren't they!
I just can't believe we are in mid June aleready.

I'm in the middle of trying to sort out my craftroom/spare bedroom
between guests but have taken time out to make this little card.
for the challenge over at Eureka Stamps this week where the theme is

I've used the gorgeous little image
Isn't it just adorable!
My mum & dad live just at the edge of an estate & go walking
in a local country park most days. Deer are a common sight, so I thought 
this would be the perfect image for my Father's Day card to my dad!

I used a 6"x6" Kraft card base & Kraft papers which I lightly distressed with some scissors.
The image was coloured with Promarkers then cut using a Spellbinders die.
I added a computer generated sentiment, some twine & some 
scrabble type wooden letters to embellish!
I hope you like it & I look forward to seeing what you create for the challenge
