I needed to make an 80th birthday card for a relative,Peter who turns 80 very soon in Australia and as soon as I saw the sketch from Sketch Saturday I knew I had to use that sketch, and here it is:
And here is the card:
I have used one of my favourite male stamp images from Lili of the Valley called Lazy Afternoon.
He is coloured in with my copics. The circles have got tea dye distress ink blended around the edge. The fancy cirles were cut on my cricut using MTC and a file from Penny Duncan Designs.
I think the PP may be one I downloaded from the Lili of the Valley website. The large circle is cut from a sample of leather effect wallpaper my SIL gave me. The mesh across the middle was bought from the Stamp Pad Saddlesworth. The card is finished as usual with card candy.
This card is also entered into the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog, where the theme this week is birthdays.
Just 7 more sleeps till we go to the Papercraft Extravaganza in Harrogate!!!
Can you tell I'm excited??
