Alf's autumn BBQ

Hello to all my friend and followers today I hope you are all well and enjoying your week.
We've had some really good news this week-my daughter who is on holiday in Florida at the minute called us late one evening to tell us that her boyfriend had got down on one knee on the beach and proposed to her-she was so excited as were we all and there were a fair few tears as well!! They've been together for nearly nine years so about time eh?? So now I've got to start planning a card for their return.
This card today is one I made for the box at work as a couple of people asked me for male cards and there weren't any as I was having so much fun making flowery girly cards!! As I  try to keep my work cards a little more on the CAS side this one doesn't have lots of embellishments. I cheated a little as I already had this image coloured up so it was a nice quick card! I coloured him with Promarkers and added a computer generated sentiment and a couple of card candi. The papers were scraps in my 'odds' box and I rounded off all the corners with a punch to add a little more interest.
The weather last weekend was so lovely this would have been quite fitting but looking out the window today I think poor Alf might need a brolly!!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Passion for Promarkers #315-one for the boys
2 Crafty Girls-September photo inspiration
