Aeroplanes and boats

My dad is 60, today. Happy birthday to him!

This is the card I’ve made him. I cannot remember where the papers are from, but the vintage image is from Pion Designs. It’s a perfect image my dad used to be an airplane mechanic. (Ok, he was working with slightly newer and fancies planes, but hey!) The stamp is by Lili of the Valley and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The branches are made with a Martha Stewart puncher. I have no idea what made me mix in a dash of orange, but I’m pleased with how it turned out!
