Geese in Flight

I hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving!  I don't know about you, but I could use a rest.  I think we will be eating left overs for a week!   I just got this stamp a week ago and couldn't wait to color it up!  I love the natural setting and the motion of the geese in flight. 

I wanted to make a masculine card for my dad who always finds time to look at the birds!  He doesn't always know their names, but he always tries to describe them to me - either their unusual color, shape, or silly antics at the bird feeder.  I know he will love these geese - they are very common here in the Midwest and always a sight to see!
Are you addicted to washi too?  I just had to add a little stripe of color here and some red washi was jus the thing!  I hope you have a great day!

What beautiful coloring again Jeanne...the water looks so realistic! Your geese are shaded perfectly and what a good job with the photo edge corners, the neat little tab that says Dad and the pop of color from the washi tape. Your dad will love this!
