Happy Birthday Dad

As you read this I am possibly somewhere between Dorset & Kent.  Ria and I are spending the weekend with my mum and dad.  Next week my dad turns 65 and to celebrate we are going out to lunch on Sunday to a very nice Italian restaurant in London with the Italian side of the family so we are really looking forward to this, anyway thought I would share the card I made for my dad.  

I decided to try a shadow box card (but changed the sizes slightly) have used the glorious Portobello Road papers by Papermania (just love these papers) and kept the card fairly simple (just like dad! no only joking dad you know we love you really! lol)  Used a nestie for the aperture and a fab little owl that I won recently from Pink Gem Designs.  The owls crown is quite sparkly irl and is coloured using sakura stardust pens and I used 3d crystal lacquer for the eyes, the numbers were cut using the cricut.  Pleased with how this turned out for my first shadow box card, will definitely make some more.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crazy Challenge #120 ~ 3d
Papertake Weekly ~ True Colours
Tuesday Throwdown #99 ~ 3d
