80th birthday card!

  Good Evening Lovelies! Can you believe it's Friday again? I can't! boy the weeks go by so quick! 
Tonight's card my Mum asked me to make for her cousin! She wanted his name and age on it! He's a keen gardener, so I figured he'd be ok with a more nature themed card rather than gardening? Hope I'm right? 
So it's an 8x8 as usual white base, I stamped all over with the light turquoise blue DI can't remember the name? Using harlequin and text background stamp from Justrite love this stamp! Then I got out my ebony and ivory coredinations pad and used the matching blue and black magic sheets, the blue I embossed using leafy A4 mask and sanded back the black I used CC 6x6 dotty EF and sanded both colours I tore, my topper I inked using various shades of blue DI and dripped some water on then blotted to create a a distressed effect, I stamped the dragonfly from stampers anonymous in black, masked it then stamped using the harlequin background again using one of the blue DI's and inked the edges with black soot DI same for the sentiment too which was cut with spellbinder, the number and name I cut with a cuttlebug folder and sanded. I hope he likes it? Thank you for visiting xxx
