50th Birthday Card

Today I managed to make a 50th birthday card for a family member. Just a bit of background to show where my thinking came from. He now works abroad but spent time in Weymouth as a young man in the Navy before leaving the Navy for the private sector hence the watery colours, map ref & planes & journey sentiments.

The 'You are here' sentiment I stamped onto white shrink plastic, remembered to put the hole in for the brad, heated & voila had my sentiment tile which i think works quite well. I inked the edges to tie in with the inked edges elsewhere on the card.
