Owl Always Love You

Today I made a masculine card - for my honey.  He's been feeling down lately, and I'm hoping this will lift his spirits.

I used a fabulous freebie digi and sentiment from Beccy's Place (thank you, Beccy), which I coloured with Prismacolor pencils and mounted on brown cardstock.  I started by covering a white card base with brown cardstock and then layering coordinating patterned-paper panels according to the sketch by C.R.A.F.T. Challenge (see below).  I affixed the image and sentiment with foam tape and embellished with a feather, four buttons tied with twine, and a feather charm tied with ribbon.
