60th Birthday Card


Hi everyone, sorry I'm a bit slow at returning comments I'm full of a cold and its slowing me down this week! At least I've finished work for another week so hopefully I will be able to recharge my batteries.

Its my Dad's 60th Birthday on Friday and this is the card I have made for my mum to give him. I think this image will suit my Dad perfectly as he has a motorbike and my mum likes to go on the back but not quite flying off like this though lol!
This decoupage image is from the same artist as House Mouse I think but I can't remember what these bears are called.

This is a close up of my decoupage.
