Birthday card featuring a gardening image and a torn greeting

Still making cards for family!!  I chose this calendar page because the image depicts the tools of a gardener which the person I made it for certainly is. 
I trimmed the image from the calendar page leaving a white border.  I layered it onto navy blue leaving some spare cardstock on the bottom.  I chose a large envelope and made a brown card to fit into it.  I layered on a green layer leaving a very small border.  When I laid the layered image on the card it was a bit short so I simply tore the bottom section and adhered both pieces onto the green on my card front leaving an even border.  I tore the two edges of the laser printed greeting and adhered it to my card using 3D foam tape.  I like the look of the two different torn pieces being layered over each other.
