Soooo, a quick card to share with you tonight, which is actually my Grampy's birthday card.  It is his birthday on Sunday, but as I will be flying to Tunisia in the early hours of Sunday morning, I thought that I had best get his card made so I can delivery it, and his present, before I jet off on my holidays.  So, I decided to make it tonight before settling down to watch Bake Off.

Anyway, here is his card:

I made this by printing off a dot-to-dot of a plane and layering this onto some green card. 

My colour scheme was decided by my papers, which are actually from a Christmas set, but I think that they make good 'man' papers.

I added a bit of gauze behind the bottom right-hand corner of the image.  I also added a green button to the top left-hand corner, and threaded this with some blue and white twine.

I added a happy birthday sentiment to the top right hand corner of the image.  I attached this with sticky fixers for dimension.

Finally, I added a blue star to the bottom right-hand corner of the image too.

I also added red stars in each corner of the card and then spelled 'Grampy' in peel off letters to the left-hand side of the card.

I hope he likes his card and enjoys filling in his dot-to-dot.

I want to enter this card into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
