BG63, SSS, L28: masculine birthday card

Been doing a lot of scrapbooking, but took a break to make a card  for 
one of many birthdays to come in our family.  
I decided to make one a little on the masculine side and used 
Basic Grey's "Oxford" papers with a splash of "Granola".  

I distressed the edges of the star panel and used two distress inks to color the "hi".
I love how it turned out.  Really matches! 

The pup was stamped on the same paper as the back panel, 
but I pounced him a little with Vintage Photo.
Gave the card a little mist of perfect pearls/water.
There's a metallic gem for the collar and a dot of shiny dimensional paint on his nose.

Papers: BG "Oxford" and "Granola"
Stamps: Lawn Fawn "Critters in the Burbs" and "Quinn's ABCs"
Ink: Memento black, Distress in Barn Door and Fired Brick, Vintage Photo
Other: Spellbinders Wonky rectangles, Sizzix star, Hemptique hemp cord, Perfect Pearls, TH edge distressor, gem, shiny fabric paint, Cuttlebug star

I am submitting card into the following challenges:
Basic Grey #63: Wish Upon a Star
Lawnscaping #28: Distress Mania
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes

Can you see my "watermark"?  
I have fiddled and fiddled and fiddled and FINALLY figured out how to do it!  
Just needs to be bigger...
Thanks for looking,
