Life Is A Daring Adventure

I made this card for my oldest son's birthday.  He graduated from college in December and just started working on a wildlife refuge for the National Fish and Wildlife Service.  He loves going birding so his graduation gift was a pair of binoculars.  
Shhh don't tell him but we bought him a dslr camera for his birthday. I did a little research and found one in our price range that is perfect for bird watchers.
The papers and embellishments for this card are from a kit by Colorbok. I don't recall where I purchased it but I did have the great idea to buy 2 sets.
