London Themed 60th Birthday Card


Hope you enjoyed your pancakes last night :-)

Today's card is for my Mums Friends 60th Birthday. She said he's worked his whole life in Offices in London and a Vintage London Themed card would be perfect

I used:

Docrafts Papermania Portobello Road - Stamps, Paper & Ribbon

60th Birthday Stamp - Little Claire
'STEVE' - Studio G Alphabet Stamps

Coloured with Promarkers including the sentiments to look a little vintage

Button - TheWorks
Woodware star punch

Thanks so much for stopping by :-)

Have a fab day!
