Penny Farthing

I was unexpectedly working most of last week, so I'm trying to catch up on the cards I need to make.  I need a masculine 80th birthday card this week and this is what I came up with.
As the Anna Marie Designs backing paper is quite busy, I kept the rest of the design quite simple. The penny farthing is die cut using silver mirror card and the sentiment is computer generated.  

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

What a nice card for the birthday of a 80-year old. Maybe he did ride such a bike a long time ago...LOL

What a great idea for an 80 year old. Love the idea of die cutting from the silver cardstock.

A perfect card for a masculine 80th birthday. I did not know that is what this bike was called! So thank you for enlightening me with the terminology...how clever. Love the skinny silver shape against that red script paper. You made some wonderful design choices on this one, and it's terrific. TFS & Happy week ahead.

A super card for an 80th birthday Liz. The silver die cut penny farthing is fabulous and it looks great on the scalloped mat and red backing paper.

What a great card for an older man. The silver paper really is a good choice for the bike. I didn't know it's real name so thank you for telling us. The happy birthday paper is also perfect for a man card.

What a beautiful bicycle, Liz! I love how all the white around it is so well balanced with the paper!

Liz, can I ask you what die you used, please? I have some gorgeous buttons that would go beautifully with it, so I'd love to be able to get the die for myself. I can see from your fab card what great results it gives!
