Dad's Deckchair Dreaming

It' my Dad's 60th birthday in a couple of weeks time so I thought I really should make him a card for it. Totally Gorjuss' Challenge #218 was perfect - to make a man's card, so I used that challenge along with Lili of the Valley's Anything Goes challenge for January and Sketch n Stash's Challenge #130 (I found this sketch after someone left me a comment saying thanks for entering their challenge, which I hadn't done, but I guess the lady was on the DT for a challenge I had done!). I really liked their sketch and thought it worked very well for this card.

My dad's not a particularly fussy person so this sketch was ideal to keep his card fairly simple. My neglected stash on this card is both the patterned paper, which whilst is fairly new from October time I think I have used it maybe once or twice, and the yellow Sizzlits alphabet that I used for the numbers, which was one of my very first big purchases when I started cardmaking about 6-7 years ago. I don't even know what it's called as it's not in the original box either, but in a Ferrero Rocher box!
