Feathered Hope for Father's Day

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. I always have a difficult time with masculine cards, but I know my own Dad appreciates my efforts in watercoloring, so I watercolored this old favorite image with watercolor crayons. I mounted it on copper paper, then added some irridescent beads in blues, golds and copper to dress it up a bit. I don't know the name of this fold, but I like it for small images. The copper flap opens up and the paper underneath folds down to reveal an inside mount that is just small enough to write a little note or sentiment. It also works pretty well as an easel card.
My own Dad has had a rough year and has come through with perseverance and added character. I wanted to make something a little more special to honor him this year.
Thanks for stopping by today~
