Hippie 65th Birthday Card

I keep saying I'm not doing any more commissioned cards, but here I am again this time for a lady at work, her husband will be 65. I will only really make a card if it is specific to them (their personality, likes etc.), so when she told me he embraced the 60's with a passion and was about to relive his youth by buying a VW camper van, how could I resist ...
The template for the 65 / ban the bomb sign on the front of the card was designed and hand cut by me, the rest of the images were sourced from the internet and were listed as royalty free. I printed them off, tracedthem and transferred them to card and went over them with a Kuretake waterproof pen and then were coloured with Coloursoft pencils, sansodor, Steadtler felt tip pens and Atyou glitter pens.The flowers were made using EK success punches. The stars and circles are Nestabilities and Grand Nestabilities. All the backing papers are Basic Grey.
Take care and keep smiling
