Dad's birthday card and Halloween candy winner!

Apologies it has taken me so long to pick a winner for the Halloween candy but I have a few health worries but yesterday I had some good news and am feeling a lot more relaxed and like my old self!

The winner of my candy was picked by the random generator, the winner is one of my regular visitors;
CAROL from Crafty-Stamper

Congratulations Carol please send an email with your address to tracy.welham@sky.com so I can post out your prize.

Now on to my project, my dad is one of those awkward people who has a birthday in December - haha!  I try to avoid Christmasy looking cards for people with birthdays in December and for this card I used the Country Treasures paper kit which I think is from Tattered Lace.  I have had this in my stash for a while now but this is it's first outing!

I started with an 8x8 base card from Keep on Crafting, which is my local craft shop in Bury St Edmunds.  I have layered it with a sheet of patterned paper.  I have mat and layered the image on Anna Marie Designs black card.  I edged all the cards, papers and image in Forest Moss Distress Ink.
The owl image is decoupaged, and I have added some burlap from my stash and Anna Marie Designs natural moss to make a little nest.  
The sentiment is from the kit I have coloured it with Forest Moss distress ink and added burlap strings & peg from my stash and stamens & dried flowers from Anna Marie Designs.
I used Cuttlebug Typewriter alphabet dies to personalise the card.
To finish it off I added a different scene from the same sheet also edged with Forest Moss DI and mounted on Anna Marie Designs black card. 

Creative Blessings.  x
