Relaxing In The Garden

Sooo, today is my step-dad's birthday (Happy Birthday!) and I would like to share with you the card I made for him:

This was a quick card as I haven't had much time for creating cards recently - far to busy sewing.  I am onto the last Elsa dress now, and hopefully I will get that finished this week.  I then have a dress currently half made and pinned onto Doris to finish, my Christmas party dress to make, along with a few stitched Christmas presents.  Fingers crossed I can get everything done before xmas, but with work, studying, not being able to get into the craft room for various reasons, I'm starting to panic a little, and I still have my Christmas cards to make.

Anyway, enough of me rabbitting on.  As this was a quick card, I used a topper from the LOTV vintage boys art pad (which I am nearly all out of, so have to get some more).  I edged this with some brown ink, layered onto some striped paper, then some red paper, then some brown striped paper.  All the papers are from LOTV paper pads, but I don't think any of them are from  the same - I decided to use up some scraps.

Before layering the panel onto the brown paper, I wrapped it with some brown baker's twine, which I got from the Ribbon Girl.

To finish the card, I stamped 'happy birthday' with brown ink, inked the edge of the the panel and attached this to the card with a red button to finish it off.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
