70 not out!

Good morning! It's my lovely dad's birthday on Saturday and it's quite a big one. He is feeling a bit low about his age so I wanted to mention it on his card but not make a huge thing about it. I hope I have achieved this with this card. I spent ages thinking and searching for images and stumbled across this fab cricket image from Delicious Doodles. My dad is a huge cricket fan and used to play for the local team when he was younger. I know 'not out' is a cricketing term so used this for the sentiment...

I decorated the inside of the card with an image I found online of Lord's Cricket Ground in the 19th century...
A close up of the Lord's image...

Image on front - At The Crease from Delicious Doodles
Image inside - found online for free ;-)
Sentiments - done on pc
Paper - old Basic Grey
Button & twine - stash
