Happy 50th Birthday to a Very Special Brother

 My brother-in-law is celebrating his 50th birthday at the end of September but he had his party last night.  This is the card I made for him.
 I have used various toppers, backing papers, embellishments from Debbi Moore's Shabby Chic Garden CD and Debbi Moore's Garden Decoupage in-a-box CD.
 I made a large A4 gatefold card and with the shed on the front I made a shaker card with little "50" numbers inside.
 Here is the back of the card with various decoupaged images.
Inside the card is the verse and I also used velcro to attach four seeds of flowers to be used in his garden next year.

This card took weeks and weeks on-and-off to make as I wasn't sure what to put inside until I had the idea of the seed packets and had to wait to go into town to get them.

Fingers crossed he likes it.

Wow you're quick of the mark Kym! I love your creation (it's more than just a card!). Your verse is the finishing touch. I'm not surprised it took so long to make but you've done a great job. Thanks for joining in with my choice of theme at the CD Sunday challenge.

A gorgeous card, as I have a garden-loving husband I know just how perfect it is for a gardener, and the addition of the seed packs is inspired, it makes it into a gift as well. Thank you for sharing at Cardz 4 Guyz and CD Sundays.

I think the seed packets are a great idea and I like the open shed door on the front. Well done on decorating the back of the card as well. Definitely a keepsake card. Thank you for sharing with us.
