"When I'm Fifty-Four"

Mister Handmade in Israel recently turned 54, not 64, but what's a bit of poetic license when you need it? His birthday was right in the middle of the World Cup, and we're a family of football addicts anyway, so his birthday card this year simply had to be football themed.
My design was a simple one. I cut out a large football from the centre of the card and then followed with the tiny letters of his birthday greeting in a circle around it. I cut the card out of white stock and I added a red paper inlay. The flag of England is red and white, with a centred St. George's Cross on a white background. Mister Handmade in Israel's beloved Arsenal play in red. Red was the obvious choice.
There was a cake as well, though it wasn't red and white. More like multicoloured.

Given the choice 54 is considerably better, Lisa. :) :) And it's a great card.

Hi Lisa, what a beautifully simple card (and cake), but perfect too. Every time I see one of your cards I'm in awe of your creativity. Your husband looks like he has a long way to go to 64, which I'm sure he's glad of too.

Thank you for linking up with #keepingitreal
