Graduation Owl - "Branching Out"

This is a graduation card for a male cousin who's graduating college with flying colors.
The owl stamp I had, but it didn't have a tail or the graduation hat; I doodled those in myself, along with some further details/lengthening of the branch he's sitting on.  To be honest, I think I even like the inside of the card best!  Doodling this one was so much fun.  And I think it came out masculine-looking and also true to my style, which is in fact an accomplishment ;)

And the inside:

Here are the challenges:

Materials Used on this Card:
Cardstock {Papertrey Ink}
Stamps {Inkadinkado, Papertrey Ink} + doodling
Apron Lace edge punch {Fiskars}
Swiss dots embossing folder {Provo Craft}
Brown brads {Spare Parts}
Butcher's twine

Hoep you all have a great day, and thak you so much for visiting!
