Birthday card

Here is a card I did for my co-worker who turned 40 earlier this month.
Mikael 40I’m entering this in Scraplagret’s February Challenge which was to make a special card for a special somebody, trying to capture his/her personality on it. Well, I might not have read the fine print well enough, Mikael is just a co-worker who I love as a co-worker. LOL! (I am lucky enough to have the best working place in the world and I truly love the people I work with!)
Over to the “capture his personality” part. He is a historian, hence a vintage look. He is also a very well organized and tidy person so I kept it clean. His research area is Swedish constitution, so yellow and blue… AND, more precisely the position of the monarchy within the parliamentary system, hence the royal crown. :):):) I had my thinking cap on!
I’m off visiting my parents and I wish all my readers a wonderful weekend!!!!
