Window Blinds

Hi Everyone and also to my lovely new followers, I hope to keep you entertained with something different every few days.

Today I certainly have something different. I hope you won't be offended.

I needed a birthday card for a friend of 51 years, we have always had a great laugh the 4 of us, so usually send him a humorous birthday card. This year was no exception. I am a member of the Card making and Papercrafts with the Silhouette on Facebook where Marie Papadopoulou made a silhouette behind some window blinds, then a few others did something else with the blinds and then I saw this by Julie, well here is my interpretation on the theme, the image is from a font. 

I cut the blinds out of shiny black card with the image in matt black card, I added the background I had played with in PS and printed it out. The sentiment is one I saw on the web and it seemed to suit the image and our friend LOL. He is 74! I'm glad to say he laughed his head off.
