Grand Old Age

Hello all I can't believe how long it's been since I posted on here, where is the time going with the early dark nights and cold day's you just want to wrap up and keep warm.
We did finally do a little Christmas shopping last weekend but will have to get my skates on else time will run out.
Jodie asked me if I could do a card for her they were going to a 90th Birthday party, a friend Granddad, I just couldn't decide what to do, I suddenly remembered I had got my Steampunk cd., and I must say I really enjoyed doing something different, I always struggle with mens cards at the best of times.
I printed out the backing paper and topper from MCS Tinkering with Steampunk along with a boarder tag and sentiment, I made an 8 x 8 card base, I embossed a 90 onto a piece of scrap backing paper using gold embossing powder, I also had some embellishments to which I added some wings. He absolutely loved his card, and it was something different too.

The Challenges I would like to enter my card into are-:
Crafty Boots - Anything Goes.
Crafty Card Makers - Heat Embossing.
Lexi's Creations - One For The Lads.
Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes.
