Commissioned Birthday Card

 
 
 
I was asked to make an extra special birthday card for a gentleman's 80th birthday from his work colleagues - yes he's still working some hours aged 80!!  For my card I decided to use Joanna Sheen's Times Gone by CD.  As quite a few members of staff needed to sign I decided to make an A4 card.  I used backing papers and images off the CD and used card from my own stash.  The card is finished off with lots of buttons, peel-offs, rope, metal anchor charm and sentiment off the computer.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments - We want to see metal
Rainbow Lady's - Cards for Men
Papercrafting Journey - Anything goes
Craft Your Days Away - Buttons or bows
Mark's Finest Papers - Make it masculine
Fab n Funky - Happy birthday
