Commissioned birthday card and a few challenges

Hi everyone,
Just thought I'd post this little card I made that my Mum requested for a dear friend of theirs who is due to celebrate his 80th birthday.
Firstly here is the card:
I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers which I have shown below:
I used my Lighthouse memories die cutter to cut out the circle for the background and have used brown and blue Stampin Up papers which I won in a candy some time ago.  The image I have used is from Bugaboo and is called "At My Age".  I think the images at Bugaboo are hilarious - if you haven't already been and had a look you really should.
I coloured the image with promarkers and matted this and all the backing papers onto pale blue card.  I have used this image a few times now because it is ideal for a man's card and I love him.
I shall enter this card into the following challenges:
Friday sketchers - sketch
Stamp Something - Celebrate something
Allsorts - Birthdays
DU2DS - Anything Goes
Digital Tuesday - Make me laugh
Paperplay Challenge - Brown and ? (I chose blue)


  1. I love this card and at 80 you can wear anything you want....
