Seize the Birthday ~ Anything goes

I need a card for my DAD who will be turning 92 in a couple of weeks, and I mentioned in another post that he used to raise Chrysanthemums...so of course I had to use PTI's Mum's the Word for his card.  Now, even though it is flowers, I think I managed to make it somewhat masculine...at least I think he will really like it.  If you want to play along go HERE and you can make a card for Anything goes...your choice, or the "toppings" this week is choosing a predominant color of your choice.  I just went with anything goes because I wanted an assortment of the colors of mum's!!
 I really liked this sketch from the Muse Challenge a couple of weeks ago and didn't get a chance to play along at the time, so I decided to use it now. 
The "Insider" of the card...yes he will be 92!  I will have to make a German chocolate cake as that is his favorite and my Mom always made one for him on his birthday!
PTI Stamps:  Wishes come True, Headline Alphabet, Mum's the Word, Boutique Birthday,                   MFT stamps:  Textile Background.
PTI Ink:   Terra cotta tile, summer sunrise, harvest gold, kraft, ripe avocado

                                                  
So this week your "Toppings" option is
" Monochromatic."
