Happy Fathers Day Dad!

Hello Lovelies - and if there are any dads out there reading this - Happy Fathers Day!!! Hope my dad is enjoying his day so far - this is the card I sent to him: I had to have this image - my dad had always been a keen gardener and this just so suits him!

 I've teamed the fabulous image  up with a brand new to me spellbinders diecut in my dads favourite colour green. The sentiment is also LOTV and the watering can is a charm I got from over at The Ribbon Girl. Its a bit of a CAS card really - my dad's not a fussy fella so I'm hoping it will suit him. The card blank is centura pearl darks from Crafters Companion. The image was coloured with promarkers.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
