40th Birthday Card

Hello to all my lovely friends and  followers I hope you are all doing Ok. This scheduled post is a card I made before my holiday for my Friend to give to her son who was 40 last week. He is a great snowboarder so I found this image on the internet and  printed it onto photo paper. I always enjoy making these cards as I love the research to get just what I want. I hope you all like it I know men cards are never our favorites..

I was really pleased when I found the shield charm in my box as it has the year 1975 on it the year her son David was born.I made the edge brackets myself. I must apologize for the box photo I really struggled to get a good image because of the mirra card, without either my reflection or my Ipad .

I hope you are having a great week what ever you have planned Hugs Carole x
