75th Birthday

A friend asked me to make a 75th Birthday card for a man and this is what I came up with.

I printed digi papers from Shabby Princess and layered on maroon card. The image is from Beccy's Place, coloured with promarkers: warm grey 1, warm grey 2, cool grey 3, cool grey 4, sandstone, caramel, shale, pear green, marsh green, olive green, gold and spice.

The sentiment is computer generated and I used a leaf sticker, button/twine and some gems to embellish.

I'm submitting this for:
- Sweet Sketch Wednesday #187 - Sketch (w/Fresh Brewed Designs)
- Alphabet Challenge Blog - X Marks the Spots (and stripes!)
- Oh La La Creations #121 - Happy Birthday
