90th birthday card

I was recently asked to make a 90th birthday card for a gentleman. I was given a photo to use. I kept the card simple, digitally adding a sentiment and matting the photo on to red mirror card, with some sentiment background card matted on to a black card blank, using some deckle edged strips and glittered numerals.

This is for:

Cradz 4 guyz 13: numbers

Simon says Wednesday: happy birthday
Seize the birthday: anything goes birthday
Time out 3: happy birthday with optional twist of a masculine birthday
