Hubby's birthday card

Why do holidays always pass so quickly? I looked forward to going to Wales for some time, all the preparing and packing and before you know it home again...
A great time was had by all and the weather was even good. While we were away it was hubby's birthday So I made this card before we went away. It is a different fold which I had seen some time ago but can't remenber where or what it is called... sorry...
I used one of the images by Roberta Laliberte that I won from the Prairie Fairy blog challenge. I love this image its great for male cards.

A view of the card flat showing the sentiment inside.

I used Prairie Fairy digital image, Field of sky stamp, Promarkers, Pebbles paper,
Nesties, dovecraft brads and stickles.

I am entering this card into the following challenges -
Passion for Promarkers - Anything goes
Charisma Cardz - 3D
C.R.A.F.T. - Birthday/celebrations
Crafty Creations - favourite stamp
