90th Birthday

Good Evening my Crafty Friends
I got a phone call from my Hubby the other morning asking me to make his Uncle a Birthday card since he was turning 90. I had to get it out in the mail fast so this card turned out super simple and I think I went a little overboard with the stitching.

Congrats to your uncle for turning 90! That's amazing and your card is a fantastic one for a man. I always found cards for men to be a bit more challenging.
