80th Birthday Card

Another easel card - I seem to be doing a lot of these lately.
This is for my neighbour's Mum to give to her husband for his 80th birthday.
I was told his interests, rugby and brass bands....I haven't got a decent cricket image and have recently done a rugby card, so I googled musical instruments and images and found a flugelhorn which is the instrument he plays. The old photo is of a local band.
Edit: He Loved it!

Did you think it was a trumpet??? I couldn't tell the difference but I am assured he will. There are two layers and have to say what a 'fiddle' (ooops , sorry) they were to cut out.

The bottom paper is the same as the top but my rubbishy photography makes it look a different colour.

A Spoonful of Sugar challenge 98 is One for the Boys.
Incy Wincy 37 - Fancy folds
Pile it On 13 - Easel card

I hope this is not too boring for these challenges.

Thank you for stopping by and the lovely comments you leave.

That is a lovely card Irene, and I don´t think it matters if we cant tell the difference between a trumpet and a flugelhorn.´HE will and that´s what makes the card so special. Yhanks you for sharing it. Jackie xx
