Another Happy Birthday card

Hello All
Not the most inspiring title as for most of the time that's what we make card wise unless it's that dreaded "C" occasion! Thank you for visiting and if you're able to leave a comment, I value and take on board your comments
Thank you for your lovely comments on Saturday's post. Even though I am his Nan, Oscar is the cutest and gets cuter and cuter by the day.
The weather held out until late afternoon/early evening. Fortunately, the house we were visiting had a wonderful awning and space to accommodate us all. We had a brilliant time catching up with friends and their expanding families.
Today's card is another one I have made for a crafty friend to give. My brief was that he will be 90 years old. Now, as my MIL is now 91, I went with the idea that perhaps his eye sight may be failing a bit (I don't really know for sure) and went for texture and bright colours.  Saying that I have made a second card in case I am totally way off the mark with this idea.
Hopefully seeing Oscar tomorrow (woo hoo! I can't get enough of him!)
