Fathers Day

"Fathers Day" or "graduation" 
is the challenge this month, over at Patties Creations.
Seeing as I don't know anyone graduating and we have
my Dad and Hubbys Dad, 
I thought I would make a fathers day card....using "Mallards."

I printed the image and coloured it with my promarkers.
I decoupaged both ducks and added a sentiment on my pc. 
I thought the brown corners were reminiscemt of those elbow patches older men
 seem to have on their jumpers / jackets  :)  
The backing paper is from an animal skins set of papers I have
from "the works" (which was a bargain £1).
I thought the pattern would fit so well with the colour of the ducks. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges....
