Birthday Card for DH

A few days early (his b'day is 20th and, yes, some years his b'day is also Father's Day) but I'm entering this into  two challenges...chipboard on Flying Unicorn and Vintage on Scrapology

I made the chipboard flourish using a TH die (and a sheet of chipboard - bet you didn't guess that!! lol).
The paper is from the Grace Taylor "Vintage Collection" and was coloured using TH distress ink in "Old Paper".
Image is a cab card from Dezinaworld, alpha is a vintage one from Crafty Secrets, hessian ribbon from stash (made by John Lewis), vintage button from stash along with watch parts etc.

It's only taken me three days to make this....lack of time and enthusiasm I'm afraid plus distractions...quiz (we were second!!!) and football being the main ones.

Going to start (and hopefully finish either tonight or tomorrow) a LO now.
Then I might do an altering project.....haven't yet done a tag for Tuesday...still trying to come up with something different..and green (the theme) so isn't a favourite of mine..:(

Green (well, mint choc chip) is the theme for Summer of Colour this week too. I'm saying one word. Zombies!

Lovely card, love the music sheet background.
