The image on  my card is the other image I chose for my prize from Delicious Doodles

I  was a little apprehensive about colouring it, but once I started I loved what was growing under my marker tips - and the result looks much like a photograph:

I loved creating the cloudy sky!

Once coloured, I used a blue CS mat for my image, and added pearls to the four corners.

The background is wood print DP, which I distressed, and added the following embellishment :

I left the card without a sentiment, as I thought it a pretty much 'general' card for a man, either birthday, Father's Day, get well, retirement or a 'just because' reason.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
