Dad happy birthday

Crikey I nearly forgot my fathers birthday next week!  I haven't been cardmaking for the past week too busy getting things packed for the bike ride - mind you there is not much that I can take on the bike - nevertheless I have to find everything from the last trip and squeeze it into what limited space we have!
While packing I suddenly remembered that it was my fathers birthday next week - we tend to have very few birthdays in our winter (they nearly all fall in spring or summer) and I tend to forget that his is the first one for the season so to speak.  So I hastily put a card together in the hope that it will arrive in time!

 
I have made this card following the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches, the colours are from the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays - monochromatic and brown, Southern Girls - anything and off course this fits in nicely with the weekly challenge over at AnnaBelle Stamps blog - say it with a male card.
materials - Bazzill blue cardstock; Kaiser 'offshore' papers, AnnaBelle Stamps 'party animals 1' stamps; Stazon timber brown ink; Marvy pens - blender 0, Dark brown 18, Prussian blue 29, Sky blue 75; blue ribbon, staples, Pink Paislee blue alpha stickers.
Thanks for looking.
