A Birthday Card for Dan

Good Afternoon, I have a card to share with you today made for my youngest son's birthday next week, he will be 34 and he is my youngest where did all those years go? Anyway back to my card, for my image I have used a copy of one of my husband's watercolour paintings, the bp is by Bo Bunny, I distressed the edges and added a little Walnut Stain distress ink. I finished with a Tim Holtz metal element, some card candy and a computer generated sentiment.

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