60's scooter

Hello,  happy Thursday to all.
 On Tuesday my friend Desi asked me to make a 60th birthday card for her brother-in-law, Peter. Her  brief was....  it must have his name and a scooter on the front... no pressure then!
Here's what I came up with.
What do you think, will they both like it?
The chevron stamp is part of a free set from a new stamping magazine called.. Get Stamping, scooter stamp is from Hobby Craft and the letters belong to a set from which I've lost the packaging. All stamped with Kaleidacolor: Spectrum. I used Glossy Accents on the scooter and letters. My Glossy Accent  is a bit discoloured cos I made the mistake of putting a hat pin in the top to stop it clogging .. but it went a bit rusty and coloured the glue... shan't do that again! but I think it looks OK. The banners are drawn freehand with a discreet 60 added.
 Bye for now

I'm sure they will both love this - don't see many scooters about nowadays!! The colours are just right for the era too.

Your card fits the brief brilliantly Suzi and am sure your friend will think so as well. Haven't heard of this new stamping mag, will have to keep an eye out for it. Happy Easter, Annette x
