Masculine card for a young man

Made this card for a young man who has a birthday coming up!!  I love the colour combination!!  I choose the blue and green cardstock, taped them together on the back and trimmed them down to fit on my kraft card front.  I punched the right hand side of my layer with the chevron punch (SU) and taped the green punchie into the top hole.  I embossed the left hand side using a herringbone embossing folder, watercoloured my laser printed owl image (Michelle Perkett Studio) and sewed it into place with black thread on my sewing machine capturing two green ribbon flags in the process.  I watercoloured my laser printed punchie greeting (Birds Cards) as well, added a couple stars in the center and attached it to my layer using a mini black brad.  I adhered this layer to my card front using double sided tape.
Very happy with the look of this card and really appreciate all the artists that are offering their digital stamp for download on line!!  Thank you!!
