A card for Vince

I have now made cards for all the family. Liverpool fan Sue ( Ric's colleague) her daughter Zoe's 18th, Man U fan son Josh and now her husband Vince..I have it on authority that Vince is covered in tattoos, so used that idea to come up with his card. The backing paper is of a tattoo design for a tiger which I then transferred to 3D Card Builder 2 to repeat the image .. also I used a strip of blue faux snakeskin card ( to beef it up a bit) with peeloffs. The pic of Vince was given to me by his wife Sue ( an old school photo) and pyramaged using the same CD ( it looks a bit squiffy because of the angle I took it at . The sentiment was done using Wordart and cut with Nesties. The insert is another Tattoo design and the words are done using a font often used by Tattooists . Any comments would be appreciated.
