Birthday card for Pastor

Today I finished up a birthday card for our pastor.  His birthday was a week or so ago, so the theme of the card works out perfectly!  I will enter this card in the Tilda's Town Challenge #110 The Great Outdoors.  I think it will be perfect!

Over a year ago Pastor Eric and another member of the congregation went moose hunting in the wilds of the far north.  I have forgotten exactly where they went.

The card base is Stampin' Up's Baked Brown Sugar.  The background scene was Magnolia's Hiking Background colored with Copics and was stamped on Cryogen 89# White.

Walter the Moose represents the moose that the guys shot and brought home.

The head is now proudly displayed in Pastor and Deby's living room and it is HUGE!

 The tree is from a Memory Box die Small Alder Tree.

Here is the open version of the easel card.

Walter looks very proud of himself and is almost laughing at those foolish men trying to take him down.

The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The sentiment panel was cut from SU's Pistachio Pudding cardstock using Spellbider's Labels Seventeen.  The sentiment was computer generated. "The Sorry I Moosed ..." phrase was from Hanna Stamps (no longer in business).  All the phrases have the word moose worked into them.
 Here is a closeup of the sentiment panel.
It should be obvious why I chose the birthday cake stamp.  Pastor loves his toys, so the chain saw was a perfect choice.

The two small images are Riley Moose stamps from Riley and Company Online.  

I am entering this card in the Tilda's Town Challenge #110 the Great Outdoors.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to see you again soon!

Great card, Kathy, and so fitting for the pastor, since he actually went moose hunting - and has the trophy to prove it !! That Riley the Moose - he has a pose for everything, doesn't he ! Great card and good luck on your challenge entry, too. Pastor will be tickled with it . . .
