Milestone card

Morning peeps a quick post whilst son is still in bed before school and I have a day of decorating ahead, well starting to decorate the kitchen anyway.
This card is for one of hubbies colleagues as it's his 40th birthday at the end of this week. I usually find it easy makeing masculine cards but it's harder when you have little info about the person so I just used a mix of masculine papers, I think they are k and co and papermania but not 100% as I've lost the front of the pad along the way. I used the card backing from some forever friends peeloffs for the base card which I drew and cut out the letters and then simply covered them in paper and added a lotv image and a place to write the message and a peeloff to the front. I used gold elatic parcel cord and garden twine to fasten it together through three holes made with a hole punch.

Oops sorry 6:15 have to stir son and take him a drink.

Back now , right here are the pics of each letter and the card in full, hope it's not too boring.
