Sketch and Stash/Cards for Men

I've used this image before but it's perfect for the recipient - an old school friend of Nick's who's just about to hit the big   5-0.  He's a horticulturist by trade so hope he likes this rather swarthy outdoorsy looking guy!

I followed the sketch over on Sketch and Stash,  no 43, coloured with Distress Inks and edged the image with an Inkadinkoo leaf flourish.  The flower pot and leaves were die cut as was the  itty bitty tag, with the trellis punched with a Martha Stewart Punch. 

I'm also entering my card into the current Cards for Men challenge which has a theme of long, summer days so this should fit the bill!  Gardens and beer - perfect!!

Need to go and catch up on my blogging now - see you soon.
