Thank Owl

Hello my crafty friends,
Today's challenge over at Artistic Inspirations is to make a masculine card.  I think of shades of brown and textures when asked for masculine cards. So no bling this time.  The image is from Dilly Beans. I used Cuttlebug Fleur Embossing folder. I used the Silhouette Cameo to print and cut the label, sentiment and to cut the owl and tree branch. I added metal black buttons from my stash to the label.
I used Spectrum Noir markers EB1,TN1,2,5,CT4,GB11. I added pop dots to give the owl dimension sitting on the branch. Overall, I am happy with the results of this card. My hubby even liked it. Thanks for stopping by today and leaving your kind words. I love reading them.
 I entered this card in the following challenges:
