Belated Happy Birthday John

Good moring all!
I hope you had a good weekend!
The card I have to share with you today is a commisioned card.


This was for a friends husband's 60th Birthday.
I did intend posting it on his birthday but for some reason, when I 
went off on holiday the draft just disappeared! 
I used the Flippin' Men DIY Decoupage sheet from La Pashe.
It's a brilliant sheet for Joiners, Handymen & DIYers!
I used Kraft card for the A5 easel card base, matted the background 
image & poem onto some plain brown paper.
The sentiment was created on my PC then cut out with a die.
The stop is made using a piece of kraft card which was given a decorative edge 
using a Spellbinders Border Die & wrapped with some button twine. 
This was then popped up on some foam tape.
Some card candy & my treasured tool charms were added to embellish.


Here's a little side view just to show the fold!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'd like to add this to the following challenges:
