First Father's Day Design for the Year

I made this recently for my dad for Father's Day. My dad has always loved the outdoors. When I was a kid, we went hiking as a family a lot. I spent six summers working at a summer camp in the woods and my dad absolutely loved taking me up there. As a young man he did NOLS, taking his course from its founder, Paul Petzoldt. So, when I think of manly things that describe my dad, I don't usually go with the typical sports and so on. I saw this card, and the colors made me think of the woods and piney things, and this card is what I ended up with. The inside says "Happy Father's Day". AND since I colored all eye images, it applies for this week's A Muse Studio Challenge blog!
Stamps: A Muse lost without you, elegant winter set, compass, essential sentiments set, and evergreen branch
Paper: A Muse fern, kraft and grass cardstock
Inks: VersaFine vintage sepia and Memento rich cocoa
Misc.: EK Success 1" and 1 1/2" circle punches, foam mounting tape, Martha Stewart Crafts baker's twine, copic markers, Sizzix BigShot, A Muse wood grain embossing plate
