Happy 21st

Morning again and back with my second DT project today-a card for the ATG/Just for fun challenge at Simply PapercraftsI made a 21st card for my eldest grandson who unfortunately we haven't seen since he was about 7yrs due to an unfriendy divorce but the card was passed on and hopefully he liked it.He was an engineer cadet on the new P&O cruise ship and he is now a 3RD Engineer Officer,I used a pic he sent his Dad on FB,varios papers/chipboard key from stash,sentiment was computer generated,numbers from a TH paper,the metal looking strip was silver mirri embossed with TH EF and wiped with black acrylic,cardstock from Papermill Direct.
