Happy Birthday to a Special Father - Card No 1

It's my husband's birthday in a few weeks so I need to make cards for the boys to give to their dad.  I don't ask - I just make - and they pay!!!

For this card I have gone for my husband's LOVE of his garden and gone with a floral image from a Debbi Moore CD called "Decoupage Delights" that came with my recent Inspiration Magazine.  There are some amazing papers, decoupage, inserts, bows etc and it was very hard to choose one but as it was for a man I went with this blue flower.

I have used the decoupage sheet and two backing papers from the CD as there wasn't a blue insert so I have devised my own.  I have decoupaged up the image with foam pads.

I have finished the card off with a sentiment off the computer, gingham bow, button and some gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything goes
Polkadoodles - Red, white and blue - I have gone with blue
Artistic Inspirations - Anything goes/patriotic colours
Tuesday Throwdown - Anything goes

Wow, beautiful! I just found your blog on Sister Act. I am new to blogging and challenges and you have a wealth of valuable info. Also, I have never done decopaugue. But, since what you've created is so lovely, perhaps I should learn something new! Thanjs
