60th Birthday Male card

Hi Everyone, I am in the middle of "designing" an 50th birthday invitation, it needs "bling" and you should know I don't usually do bling, so I'm struggling, that's why I have come from it and decided to show you a card I've done, but haven't blogged.

I used various items from a few vintage digikits I have, it had to include a cruise ship, antiques, an old Land Rover, butterflies, golf clubs and a few more things, as I have said before, I am asked to include some strange mixtures. Oh! well he was pleased that's all that matters ay?  I also added Krylon gold pen around the edge and it even showed up in the piccie and a few black buttons. The black surround is a base, nothing to do with the card.  If there is anything in particular you can see that you want to know about, please ask :)

I've added a couple of piccies of the garden, in the light I was telling you about yesterday.  The light seemed to enhance the reds whether it was the rain I don't know. Hope you enjoy them :)

My goodness, what a challenge to include all those things on a card - and you came up trumps, it looks wonderful!

Your garden pictures are lovely, too, the red is so striking! And I love those little grape hyacinths, too! (I'm not a gardener, so I don't know any technical names. Though my Jedi Master on the Church Flower Arranging team is trying to teach me!)

I hope you have a lovely week! A bit of sunshine would be a nice change, wouldn't it?!

love Mags B x

What a fabulous card, just perfect for a male birthday! It has that vintage feel, and the gilded edges of the patterned paper is a perfect touch!

I must say, I am jealous of your garden...I am from New England in the United States, and as it's just becoming spring here, I have plants barely poking their leaves from the ground yet!!
