Popcorn Father's Day Card

This is the Father's Day card that I made for my daughter to give her Daddy. Its another huge card by my standards , it's 8x8. I have used a Popcorn the bear stamp (that I have had for ages but never used as its so big!!) coloured with ProMarkers.The backing papers are from 2 seperate Forever Friends packs. Then added jute,sentiment and bow with little watering can charm from my stash.

Can anyone tell me please how they attach jute? I found this nearly impossible lol I used my xyron in the end but most of the sticky stayed on the backing sheet rather than on the jute :(

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Cards for Men - Someone Special
Pollycraft Challenge - Boys to Men
Saturday Challenge - Dust Off Your Stash( the popcorn bear stamp,forever friends gardening paper and charm I have had for ages but never had the opportunity to use)
