Happy Birthday Simon

I made a card for Simon as it's his birthday today.

I made the card during the Jubilee weekend.
As Simon lives in London I thought he would appreciate this image.

This card was designed for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - week 204 - and a CASE-IT CHALLENGE. Here is Kath's original:

I downloaded the union Jack from the Letraset website. There is a Promarker tutorial there by Jak Heath - for colouring the downloads to make a 'Queen for the Day' card. I decided to print it onto three different patterned papers, cut them out and piece them back together.
The papers and the greeting were all freebies from Simply Homemade Magazine- 'The Simply British Collection'.
The stamped image is Penny Black and I coloured it with my Promarkers.
The 8" x 8" scalloped card blank and silver Candi are both from Craftwork Cards.
The letter stickers are from Basic Grey's 'What's Up' collection.
The greeting was mounted onto a punched circle and then onto a scalloped circle using Stampin' Up and Woodware punches.

Happy Birthday Simon! xxx
