Happy birthday to a gardener

wow... not easy making cards for someone else... much easier when they pick from cards that I have already made.  I had a request for a Birthday card for a dad.  And this card needed to be about this person.  The end request was vintage, travel or gardening since he loves to garden and produce tomatoes.  You would be surprised how hard it is to find images that would fit this ;)  But I managed to find some on various vintage sites.  I have put them as reference to this post.  Here's the card:
This turned out to be a really difficult card to make but I'm happy with the result.  I used Tattered Angel mist on the sentiment, copics to color the man and some silver dew drops.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. Craft your days away - metal
  2. Love to create challenge - anything goes
  3. Make it monday - anything goes
  4. The stamping boutique challenge - photo inspiration (reminded me of gardening so perfect for my card) 
So that's it for tonight and tomorrow I'm having supper with my bestee!!!!  YAY!!!  It will be so much fun.
