Dad 70th birthday card

This is a 8x8in white card. I have used an image from Hunkydory Gentleman's Journeys Little Book. I have layered my card firstly with black card then half the card with red card and half with white embossed dotty card. I embossed using an Embossalicious folder. I have used Creative Expressions ribbon at the join down the centre of the card. I have printed a sentiment a die cut it an oval die from a Presscut set, I layered the sentiment on a black die cut oval. I die cut 70 with Marianne dies in red and black, I slightly offset them whenI stuck them down. I completed the card with three buttons from my stash.
