Birthday card for Dad

Hi all,

Back again to share a card I made for my FIL, whose birthday is at the end of December. I have had the Graphic 45 Typography paperpad for a long time and have hardly ever used it. I don't really know why I bought it, since it really is not my style, but for some reason for a while there Graphic 45 must have been hypnotising me with their products as I constantly wanted to buy more. Thankfully I resisted mostly, as that stuff was/is expensive! Therefore, I didn't just want to purge it and not use it, so I thought it would really well for a birthday card for an "older gentleman".

I used several papers from the pad and teamed it with a party person wood veneer (I realise now that I really didn't need that many party people as come in a pack, I have had this forever too!) and some really ancient word stickers. Some gold thread stitching along the sides of the banner completed the project. I think it worked out quite well and some more paper leaves my craft room :)
