Birthday card in kraft and black

A card for my son!!  We are fortunate to have him visiting - DH and he are doing some woodworking in the garage!
I glued my decorative paper to a layer of black cardstock.  This paper is one I brought back from London when we went a few years back.  I love the graphic look of it!!
I added a border of black cardstock punched with a multiple slot punch and trimmed with scallop decorative scissors.  I ran a length of blue vintage seam binding through the slots, glued the border to the decorative paper and glued the ends to the back of this layer using double sided tape.  I mounted my focal element over the border using 3D foam tape, tucked a laser printed greeting just below on the left and glued the whole thing to the front of a kraft card.  I layered two circles for my main element.  The loon was thermally embossed on tan using black embossing powder.  I distressed its edge, glued it to a black circle which was just a bit larger and distressed its edge as well.
