Green fingers and gardening...

I made this card for my SIL to give to my nephew for his birthday. He has been enjoying his garden recently. Stamps are all from Hobby art and are watercoloured with brush pens. the base card was inked with distress oxides and stamped in versafine clair.
I'm entering it into the Boys and Men challenge over at Penny Black and more and Anything goes at Allsorts. I'm taking it to The Male Room too where the theme is 'in the garden' ( thanks for letting me know, Faith x).
Hope you are all okay. I am fine, if a little green around the edges due to an accident with my brushos!!! I went to pull out the pin on the lid and the entire lid came off. I thought I'd cleaned it all up, but I keep discovering more. It mixes really well with handcream to give an all over green tinge, and I must have sprinkled a minute amount on the bath mat when I went to wash my hands again, as when I got out of the shower this morning I noticed green footprints. I managed to rescue the card I was making, but whether I can rescue the bath mat remains to be seen😂😂😂. Remind me never to try shampooing the craft room carpet!
Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments

The perfect card for an avid gardener! Your colouring is lovely. Oh my goodness, if you ever need strong pins, you’ll know where to find them. Thank you so much for playing along with the Penny Black And More Challenge.

Hope the green is fading, Eddy and Daisy still have tinges of blue.

This is fantastic Sally. Had to have a little giggle at your accident, mine are normally with glitter just before we are about to go out. Maybe I just need to sparkle.

Stunning card Sally, a great garden card, perhaps you can pretend your bathroom mat is from the lawn? LOL. Good luck with that.
By the way The Male room challenge is for gardens. https://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.com/2020/05/challenge-136-in-garden.html

A great garden scene Sally and I'm sure your nephew will love this if he is enjoying getting out in the garden. I love the green background with the all over leaf pattern too. x
