Happy Birthday Alan!

It's hubby's birthday today and he's always saying 'when I was a lad', so I've made him a card that's ALMOST his era!!! Ha Ha.
He was born in 1938, so it's not TOO far out!  Yep! He's 71 today! Happy birthday Love!
I've used the sketch on Crazy 4 Challenges #12

I sponged everything with Tim Holtz 'Tea Dye' distress ink.
The 'Newsprint' is a piece of 12x12 DP from Monk's Den craft shop. Wish I'd got more now 'coz I like it a lot! VERY 1930's which suits that digital image a treat! That's from Digital Two for Tuesday.
I made up the sentiment and printed it off the PC.
The mount was done using a Nestability label die. (Can't think which one it's called now).
The Basic CS was picked up at the Papyr Box in Somerset, while we were on holiday.
I tarted the corner up a bit with a scroll that looked quite 30's and put two brads on the sentiment for the hell of it.
(I've since, stamped 'happy birthday in the blank column on the 'newspaper').

Hope you like my bit of nostalgia. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to catch up with you soon.
Viv xx
