Birthday Boy

It's my husband's birthday tomorrow, poor thing - this is the second year he will be 'Very Old'! - can you tell I tease him a lot about this? The joke's on me though as he doesn't really care how old he is!!
I've bought him a book about walks in Herefordshire so I though that I would make him a nature themed card to go with it. I also followed this lovely sketch from Freshly Made Sketches


Here is my card


My card stock is Stampin' Up and I have used Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Old Olive and Basic Black. My image - from Lovely as a Tree is stamped in black and coloured with markers. I used my Cuttlebug and various embossing folders to add a bit of texture and and some nesting dies for the mat to stamp my tree on.
I would also like to enter this card in to the Fab 'n' Funky Challenges as this week they are 'Celebrating Male-ness'
bye for now - Jacqueline xx
