Retirement - Pt II

This card was made for DH's friend who retired at the same time as he did. Again I used one of the fab images from LOTV  -   Art Pad 1 - Vintage Boys   (very apt description of DH and friend, LOL).

I used Spellbinders Labels 8 to add shape to the image and matted it onto brown card that had been embossed with the Die'sire Button Box folder, then wrapped with a strip of DP and a length of raffia lace. I added a LOTV sentiment and button tied with silk thread to finish off.  Note to self - must improve my inking!!      I used a ready made 6x6 Kraft card blank for this card.

I'd like to enter the following challenge:

Thanks for looking!
