Commissioned 50th birthday card

A friend asked me to make a card for a man's 50th birthday, telling me that he liked mountain scenes and he goes skiing - I found the picture here (it was free to use). The surrounding area around the picture was silver foiled on the todo using one of the rennie hot foil press. The piece of blue behind the picture has Happy Birthday embossed randomly, but it can't really be seen here - this and the background were from Kanban. The background and the foiling around the picture are bright silver, but, unfortunately, this doesn't show on the picture. I had to take the card to my friend, so didn't have any opportunity to take another photo.
