Happy Monday everyone I hope you have all had a great weekend. The card I'm sharing today is a one I made a while ago for a commission. My friend Val asked for a male 80th with a garden theme as the man loves his garden. I didn't want to post it earlier but as the birthday was yesterday I'm sharing it with you now. I bought the lovely Potting Shed stamp from Lili of the Valley which I thought was just perfect.
