21st birthday for a gardener

This A5 card was commissioned by a friend to send to a nephew for his 21st birthday - the theme I was asked for was something suitable for a gardener. The background is from a piece of Kanban card, other bits and pieces from stickers and sentiment toppers, as well as the Anita's decoupaged bottom right.
