Sketch & Stash Challenge # 8

I find it so hard making mens cards and to boot this is for a 90th birthday! The Sketch and Stash Challenge sketch came up trumps:
I was stumped for an image but decided upon a personal photo of my sister's Father-in-Law with my nephews and brother-in-law from their holiday last Summer. I used Stampin Up card and paper and Doodlebug mini just my type alphabet for the 90 and name, some Doodlebug velvet brads finished off the card. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

I've also made a 21st birthday card this afternoon but am unable to put it up until next week in case my nephew gets wind of it :)

Thanks for looking.
