South Shields in Black and White for Mark's 40th

I made this card a while ago but have not been able to publish till after Mark's birthday. South Shields is his home town although he now lives in the south and works in a very challenging job with the military in Afghanistan. I made this card for his Mum my best friend to give him on his 40th. I got the idea from the main image of The Groyne and worked around that. It is very different from my other cards but I really enjoyed the research to get the right pictures that went well together. I was particularly pleased with the image of the Bamburgh  pub his local in his youth.
