Ellephantastic May Challenge

Oh Heck Well this caught up with me sneakily. WOW its the May Challenge on Ellephantastic. Where did April go??????
This month the challenge is to make a Birthday Card.
So I have made my one for Dad a bit early as his birthday is not till the end of June but the way that this year is going if I blink I might miss it!!!! Mind you its a Big Birthday for him!!! Argh Retirement time. I don't think I should have a Dad old enough to retire. Its just not right!!!
He likes Archibald Thorburn Paintings and when I saw this image I knew he would like it.

I got to use the image from Digi Doodles Shop who are one of the Sponsors of the challenge this month.  There are also a few others too. Ellephantastic, Crafty Sentiments, Robyns Fetish and Susies Die Cut Dreams.
