I wanted to do a birthday card for a friend of ours who is a "no fuss" sort of guy, and a keen gardener to boot.
I didn't have much time as he and his wife were coming over that night, so I drew this funny little man dressed in his straw hat and gardening apron , printed him on white card and decoupaged him.

I covered a 6X6 card with chocolate brown card then embossed a slightly smaller piece of mid blue (white core) which I had embossed on one side and sanded to show the white core.
A piece of "Hot Off The Press" Dotty paper was matted with brown then I used a CLEAR Sakura pen to highlight the dots.
I glued this to the left hand side of the card and stuck on the "Gardener", I then stuck small plastic flowers onto the stems using foam pads.
The Happy Birthday was printed and backed with the same brown as the rest of the card.

I wouldn't usually use flowers on a man's card but he IS a gardener so it was either that or vegetables.
