Birthday Card

Hi, My friend asked me today to make a birthday card for her postman who has just celebrated his 60th Birthday. I looked around on the web to find Post Box or Postman pictures and came up with zero. I then had a brainwave and got out Joanna Sheen's American Frontier cd and found this image. Not sure if it shows up but the box in the picture says US Mail. I printed out the picture and matching backing paper and made the Pony Express Ribbon on my pc. The dark cs came from a mixed pack of Stardream card which I bought from an e-bay shop ages ago. It doesn't show up very well in the scan, but it is chocolate brown with a very subtle gold shimmer on it. Gold peel offs and gold mirri card to finish off. I hope you like it and thank you for stopping by.
