2nd of 8 card commission

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or getting there...hugs
It feels quite mild this morning, although I haven't yet been outside!
Welcome to new follower Chris Carter :o)

My cousin gave me a photograph and asked if I could make a very CAS 80th birthday card for her BiL. This is the photograph!


OMG, I am not very good at cleaning old pics up but I decided to have a go and this is the result


I am fairly pleased with myself LOL. What a good looking 13 year old he was!
I printed the photograph and sentiment onto Papermania Vanilla textured card and layered it onto brown Papermill Shop card. Base card is the same Vanilla PM textured card folded and cut to 7x5.
Here is the inside


I Googled famous births in 1933 and these are just a few of them :o)

Fabulous idea for a card... love how it's come out Jackie.. but reading the list of people born then makes me feel so old - even though they are 20 years older than me... they were our idols!

What a fantastic card Jackie - so creative about finding out births for the year the person was born - that's a cool idea! Will have to store that little gem away in my old brain.
