A Grand Card for a Grand Father - The Paper Players #165

It's time to play Tic-Tac-Toe over at The Paper Players this week:

I went with a vertical line:  Birthday/Patterned Paper/Ribbon.

I've never made a card this large before, but considering it's my father's birthday and he has 4 children and 8 grandchildren, it offers lots of space for everyone to sign :o) AND he's much deserving of its grandeur.
I purchased the Circle of Love CTMH stamp set a long while back and find it hard to believe I've never used it until now because I think it's just gorgeous.  After stamping the image on watercolour paper, I used my Blending Pen with various inks to add colour to the feathers. I then added sparkles to certain areas using glitter sprinkled onto Liquid Glass (to give it demension). A few rhinestones and dotted Liquid Pearls finished off the peacock. 
I then heat embossed the sentiment as well as the blue background paper with the feather image offered in the set (I just realized I made another 'line' in the game!)  I assembled the card with a few layers of cs and added some ribbon using Glue Dots to make it wavy.  
I'm sure my dad will love it :)

Thanks for stopping by!
