Birthday for a Gardener

My daughter helped me to make this card for Grandad for his birthday.  We started by looking through my stamps to find masculine ones and when we saw Gift from the Garden we knew it was appropriate because Grandad likes to garden.

We then found the Seasonal Decorative Masks (which are currently on special - check it out by clicking the blue link).  You get four in the pack and there was one in particular we thought went very well with a gardening theme.  What do you think?

We used the sponge brayers to sponge Old Olive ink over the mask and we made our own background.  To get the pots different colours we used Stampin' Write Markers to colour directly onto the stamp. 

We stamped on a separate piece of whisper white cardstock the watering can and cut it out.  We added water drops from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and positioned the watering can appropriately. 

We'd love to know what you think of this card?  Please leave us a comment below and let us know.
