80yrs and on a Harley!!!

Morning and the card I am sharing today was made for a friend-it was her Dads 80th birthday and he had always wanted to ride a Harley-Davidson motorbike-someone offered him a ride and a whole troop of riders turned up for his ride down Holderness Road our main road into town-so this was the card she requested.The card is 8" square.
Image was courtesy of Google and all the oddmenst of paper were from stash,TH embossing folderI embossed matt silver card and smudged on some black acrylic then wiped most of it off.The Dad letters and 80 were cut from TH papers I had had for absolute years-so I hope he knows how honoured he is lol.

A super masculine card Carol and sounds perfect for the recipient. When the receptionist retired from our GP surgery they arranged for her to a have a ride on a HD and it came complete with the accompanying troop of riders, apparently it had always been something she wanted to do.

What a fabulous card Carol and how fantastic of the riders to do such a kind thing, must have made his year I love it.x

Cath Wilson said...

Wonderful, Carol - I have the perfect stamp you could've used for this - next time, just ask - it's an old guy on a Harley and a lot of fun! You've definitely nailed this, though...you have a wonderful knack of tailoring a card to suit the occasion!
PS this would fit TIOT's new theme - It's a Man's World!
