Commissioned card, own photograph

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world, and if not, here's a few hugs {{{{{hugs}}}}}
I cannot believe how fast January is flying by, at this rate it will soon be Christmas again LOL.
My cousin asked me to make her some cards (12 of them) and this one is the first, for her brother. Before he retired about 10 years ago, he worked for the Environment Agency (formerly British Waterways) for many years and this scene, taken at Trent Meadows, Long Eaton, was "on his beat" and I was standing on a bridge when I took it.


Base card is white hammered from the Paper Mill Shop before they all closed, folded and cut to 7x5.
Blue card is from stash and probably came from the same place. The pale blue card which mats the main image is Papermania textured card as is the card I have printed my photograph onto. I added the sentiment in Paint Shop Pro.Embossing folder is an 8x8 one from Embossalicious and the leaf die is from Memory Box :o)

Fantastic male card Jackie - and it is so special because it has been personalised. Love how you framed the image with the embossed dots and the diecut at the LHS really adds so much depth to the image - LOVE the effect!
