70th Birthday Card for a Gardener

A former colleague - long retired - turned 70 yesterday.  He is a keen gardener so I made this card for him.
Cut a topper from Clarity stencil card using the 5” nested square die and a topper from black card using the 5.25” nested square picot die.
Add the chair from Linda Williams’ In the Garden Greenhouse stamp set in Onyx Black Versafine ink and mask it up.
Add the two Wisteria stamps in the top corners in the same ink.
Next, add the greenhouse in the same way – remove the mask.
Finally, add the fork/plants stamp in the bottom right corner in the same ink as the rest.
Colour all the images using Faber-Castell Polychromos.
Add Happy 70th birthday in the bottom corner using the Entwined Sentiment and the numbers and months stamps from Clarity. Use Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Add a little Tumbled Glass Distress ink around the top edges of the card with a Clarity stencil brush.
To finish, mat up the topper and add it to a 6” x 6” white card blank.
