Singing for the male of the house

Hello everybody,

After a busy day out learning how to use a kayak yesterday, I stayed at home and did some crafting while he went out and did an intro to white water kayaking! I have also completed the fern edge of my garden, but I still need to take a photograph. I also had to rescue my extra large garden spider, as she was hiding in one of the plants I was planting and I hadn't realised, and when I popped it in the hole, she nearly ended up being buried alongside it, and couldn't get out of the hole!! Poor arachnid! I did pick her out of the hole and popped her on the fence - with her rather large bottom lol - it is the size of a 20 pence piece and about 1.5cm thick too!

Anyway, here is my card creation!
I used some Tiddly Inks stamps that came free with Quick Cards magazine a year or so ago for the main image. I paper pieced the images, and coloured the remaining arears with watercolour pencils, which helped me get the shading in her hair.
The sentiment was from a Smirk christmas stamp set, and was stamped using a Pretty Colour green and red split ink pad. Finally I added a few masculine diamantes and pearls.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
