Happy 68th Birthday Dad!

it's my dad's 68th birthday today. I took the kids out to see them both yesterday, which was rather good timing on my part cos we ended up having soup - chicken, roastie and trimmings - and sticky toffee pudding and custard for lunch... yummy!!

Anyway, here's the card I made for dad. I used a LOTV stamp that i bought at the SECC in october and that's it just seen ink!
Image: Big Present from LOTV, coloured with promarkers
Background paper is Peachy keen from Kaisercraft, patterned paper is ?? think it might be Basic Grey
ribbed kraft cardstock, papermania brad, prima e line pearls, craftwork cards greeting

I'd like to enter this card into the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - tons of texture
