Happy Birthday

Yes I know it is not a girly coloured card and certainly not what the recipient expected but she liked it.  The image is from my Joanna Sheen Jayne Netley Mayhew The Digistamp CD.  I printed out the toppers sheet and used the large image on the front and the rest on the inside/backside of the card.
The backing papers I have used for this card are from "The Boys Zone" by Bearly Mine Designs.  Donna has designed an amazing amount of wonderful sets but this is still one of my all time favourites.

I have die-cut some pages out of a book and inked some with Tim Holtz's Old Paper and Vintage Photo distress inks.  I've then scrunched the layers up and held together with brads.  I have finished the card off with some ribbon, gems and stamped sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
