Commissioned Card for a Son-in-Law's Birthday

When my customer was asking me for a couple of cards she said she thought that that was all. I said that unless she wanted to be in the "dog house" for a whole year it wasn't. She couldn't think. In the end I told her it was her son-in-law's birthday at the end of the month and she admitted it had slipped her mind.

I used my new Men's CD from Crafty Computer Paper and chose this garden image as he likes being in the garden. It has been decoupaged up in various places and I made the matching insert by importing the garden image into a Word document.

I um'd and ah'd and tried a patterned background paper but wasn't happy with it as it looked too busy with the topper backing. In the end I just used some gold mirror card. This means it fits the criteria for the My Time to Craft Challenge this week as it it no patterned papers.
