Digging for victory

  As this is a male card I didn't want to make it to 'bling' but I didn't want the card to be matt, so I printed the backing paper onto centura pearl to give it a slight sheen.
  Two smaller squares cut from core'dinations card stock were then matted and layered centrally on the card.
  The Lili of the Valley image called vegetable patch was stamped diagonally onto a square of Neenah card, coloured with Promarkers and mounted onto brown core'dinations card stock. I used a Sakura stardust gel pen to make the faux stitching around the edge of the square and then fixed it to the card with foam pads.
  A square 'happy birthday' sentiment was attached in the corned with thicker foam pads.

  I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
  Penny Black and More - in the garden
  Allsorts - stitching
  Whoopsi Daisy - stitching
  Here Come The Boys - only squares
